In view of continuing uncertainty about when it may be possible to restart rehearsing and performing operas which include a full chorus we are further postponing our production of Acis + Galatea. We plan to reschedule the tour performances in May/ June 2022.

This will be a double first for NSO – our first opera by Handel and also our first using period instruments.
