In his newest work, a Lincoln Center co-commission, Mark Morris revisits Handel with an approach as bold as his groundbreaking L’Allegro, il Penseroso ed il Moderato. Morris partners with longtime collaborator and early-music specialist Nicholas McGegan to tell Ovid’s triumphant love story of the shepherd Acis and the sea nymph Galatea.
