Its plot rife with sexual politics and satirical insights into lust, ambition, power, and marital infidelity, Handel’s bold opera was a bit too much for its day despite its richly sensuous score. Since Semele’s rediscovery in 1925, though, it has become a favorite of opera houses around the world; its first H+H performances since 1999 are a fitting finale to a memorable season-long musical journey.

Soloists include tenors Jeremy Budd and Mark Dobell, who appear on the 2016 Grammy-nominated Vespers recording by Christophers and The Sixteen. They will be joined by sopranos Margot Rood and Sonja DuToit Tengblad and baritones Woodrow Bynum and David McFerrin—all longtime members of the H+H Chorus.
