Thoroughbass: Semele

18 March @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm AEDT

Tickets: Adult $30 | Concession $25

Beloved of Zeus, she is not satisfied. Semele challenges her lover to reveal his godliness and is destroyed in the process. Here is Elizabeth Jacquet de la Guerre’s cantata Semele, a tale of mistrust, doubt, vanity and dissatisfaction. Highly regarded soprano Anna Fraser renders this horrifying story in the French style – refined, lush and perfect. Together with trio sonatas by Rebel and Marais, this is music of the best quality from the reign of Louis XIV.
