The Haymarket Opera Company Makes Debut with Handel Masterpiece
 
Premieres:
Friday, September 9th 7:30 PM
Saturday, September 10th 7:30 PM
Newly-renovated intimate Mayne Stage 1328 W. Morse Ave., Chicago, IL
 
Craig Trompeter, cellist, will lead the orchestra of period instruments for Handel’s Aci, Galatea e Polifemo.   Directed for the stage by Ellen Hargis, this delightful pastoral serenade for three singers and orchestra tells one of Ovid's tales from Metamorphoses. When sea nymph Galatea chooses shepherd Acis as her lover, the cyclops Polyphemus becomes enraged and smashes him with a rock.  Acis is changed into a stream so that he may live with Galatea into eternity.  
 
The Haymarket Opera Company uses a chamber orchestra of period instruments played by top experts in the field who recreate the sounds 17th and 18th century composers would have heard as they wrote. Gut strings, valveless trumpets, and woodwinds with fewer keys lend a special timbre to the sound of the instruments and allow the music to breathe in a unique way.  
 
The Haymarket Opera Company makes its home at the Mayne Stage, 1328 West Morse Avenue in Chicago.  While the theater's origins can be traced back to the 20th century (built in 1912 as a vaudeville and movie house), it provides a perfect venue in which to perform 17th and 18th century operas. The setting is intimate and has a superb acoustic and perfect sight lines.  Nestled in Rogers Park, one of Chicago's lakeside neighborhoods, the Mayne Stage is conveniently located steps from the CTA Red Line "Morse" stop and has inexpensive valet parking and plenty of street parking.  Operagoers may also enjoy a full meal and/or drinks at Act One, the Mayne Stage's in-house restaurant.
 
Tickets $45, standing room $25 available www.maynestage.com
Box office (773) 381-4551
