О программе

Handel’s masterpiece Semele, first performed in London in 1744, is not technically an opera per se, but rather an oratorio perfectly suited to the stage, thanks to William Congreve’s brilliantly dramatic libretto that finds its roots in Ovid’s Metamorphoses

The work is composed of numerous richly melodic, astonishingly expressive arias and choruses, including “Oh sleep, why dost thou leave me?”, “Where’er you walk”, or the exquisite “Endless pleasure, endless love”! 

In this incredible production, recorded at London’s iconic Alexandra Palace and directed by Thomas Guthrie and his team, the world-renowned maestro John Eliot Gardiner conducts the Monteverdi Choir, the English Baroque Soloists and a fantastic cast of singers specializing in the repertoire, with the remarkable soprano Louise Alder in the title role.
