Pleasance Theatre

About

Semele is Handel's operatic rollercoaster through love, lust, and divine drama. Mortal princess Semele gets entangled with Jupiter on her wedding day, sparking heavenly jealousy and earthly disapprobation. As gods and mortals collide, Handel's genius shines in a whirlwind of baroque arias and choruses that are as dazzling as the powerful desires at the heart of the story. The forbidden love affair becomes a playground for exceptional vocal performances, each note weaving a spellbinding tale of ambition and consequence. The result is a mythological musical journey that proves messing with gods is never a dull affair. Join us at Pleasance theatre from the 27th to the 30th of March to witness the impeccable talent of a wonderful chorus, conducted and led by Kristine Donnan. The beautiful sounds are further highlighted by clever direction by Roxana Fischbacher. *Please note, wheelchair accessibility adjustments and seating are available upon request when purchasing tickets* This production contains STROBE LIGHTING effects
