Amidst the hum and drum of a post-modernity, a traveling troupe of singing circus folk gather to perform for you the story of "Acis and Galatea," an ancient tale that has been passed down among untold generations of street performers.  The story of "Acis and Galatea" is the classic tale of boy meets girl, boy gets girl, one-eyed monster crushes boy with rock, and boy turns into fountain.   This ground-breaking production turns the theatre into a circus tent, reknowned singers into mimes, trapeze girls, clows, and even a dancing bear, and turns traditional opera on its head.
