Rife with themes of unbridled love, jealousy, and revenge, Semele gets an energetic makeover courtesy of visionary director James Darrah (Breaking the Waves). Featuring Handel's most glorious orchestral and virtuosic vocal writing, Semele transports audiences to the world of Greek and Roman mythology and its larger-than-life personas: from lustful gods and vengeful goddesses to fallible mortals.

Performed in English with English surtitles.
