Extra Information (From the wikipedia article)
Variously described as a serenata, a masque, a pastoral or pastoral opera, a "little opera" (in a letter by the composer while it was being written), an entertainment and (in the New Grove Dictionary) as an oratorio. The work was originally devised as a one-act masque which premiered in 1718. Handel later adapted the piece into a three-act serenata for the Italian opera troupe in London in 1732, which incorporated a number of songs (still in Italian) from Aci, Galatea e Polifemo, HWV 72, his 1708 setting of the same story to different music. He later adapted the original English work into its two-act form in 1739.
