The University of St Andrews Opera Society presents Handel's Semele. This reimagining of a less familiar piece (with a ribald text by the great comedy writer William Congreve) explores the line between Gods and mortals through the rise and fall of Semele. She crosses that boundary in her role as enthusiastic lover to the God Jupiter, who meets her nemesis in the form of his wife, the scorned Juno. The most famous melody is Jupiter's serenade 'Where e'er you walk'.
Directed, produced and performed entirely by St Andrews University students, this production marks the society's debut performance.
