Thoroughbass: Semele

11 March @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm AEDT

Tickets: Adult $30 | Concession $25

Lyric soprano Amy Moore whose career in the UK and Europe is an impressive one, covering a range of early and contemporary repertoire.

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. Together with trio sonatas by Rebel and Marais, this is music of the best quality from the reign of Louis XIV.

Nicolas Siret – Ouverture from Suite en d. la ré bécarre
Marin Marais – 6th Suite des pièces en trio
Elizabeth Jacquet de la Guerre – Semelé
Jean-Féry Rebel – Tombeau de Monsieur de Lully

Soprano Anna Fraser is sad to say that she must withdraw from her singing commitments for the time being due to illness. Rest, recuperation and complete recovery is our greatest wish for Anna.
