Handel Semele

There’s loving someone who’s out of your league – and then there’s Semele, who’s got her eye on the King of the Gods himself. It can’t end well: but meanwhile Handel’s 1744 ‘dramatic entertainment’ tells her story in music of gripping theatricality and colour. The English Concert make their annual trip to Carnegie Hall via Gateshead this year – this concert performance is not to be missed.
