Opera in Concert

Handel's Semele

Event details


April 12, 2019 7:30PM


Hill Auditorium


This sparkling opera/oratorio tells of a princess’s love affair with the king of the gods and her quest for immortality.

Handel never wrote anything more sensuous than Semele, and he tells the story from Ovid’s Metamorphoses about the ill-fated love between Semele and Jupiter in brilliant arias of irresistible theatricality and dazzling coloratura. Harry Bicket and The English Concert are lauded for their Handel presentations, including two previous UMS performances (Radamisto in 2013 and Ariodante in 2017). The New York Classical Review called The English Concert’s Ariodante “a performance so stunning it was liable to make even the most jaded of early-music skeptics take note.”
