About Semele

Semele is engaged to a prince, but she’s really in love with the king of the gods, Jupiter. This forbidden passion between mortal and immortal brings them endless pleasure and endless love… until his wife, the goddess Juno, plots a fiery finish to their hot affair.

Handel’s glorious music and story of unbridled love, jealousy, and revenge get an energetic makeover in this new co-production from director  James Darrah  ("Breaking the Waves") and a stellar cast led by soprano Amanda Forsythe as Semele, mezzo Daniela Mack ("Carmen") as Juno and Ino, and tenor Alek Shrader as Jupiter.

Music by George Frideric Handel

Libretto derived from a drama by English playwright William Congreve
