Semele is among the most popular of the composer’s stage-works. In its first-ever Glyndebourne staging, Semele will be directed by acclaimed Welsh director Adele Thomas, making her Glyndebourne debut.

In recent years, Glyndebourne has forged an impressive reputation for delivering fresh and memorable productions of works by Handel, with successes including Theodora, Rodelinda, Giulio Cesare, Rinaldo and Saul.

Czech conductor and baroque music specialist Václav Luks will make his Glyndebourne debut leading the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment. American soprano Joélle Harvey takes the virtuoso title role, alongside British mezzo-soprano Jennifer Johnston as Juno and British tenor Stuart Jackson as Jupiter.

Performances at Glyndebourne from 23 July to 26 August 2023
