Visionary director James Darrah and his creative team Chromatic (Agrippina, 2014 and A Flowering Tree, 2015) return to Opera Omaha with a new production of Handel’s Semele – a darkly comic mythological story of a mortal woman’s tryst with a dangerous god. Featuring some of Handel's most glorious orchestral and virtuosic vocal writing, Semele is an opera of unbridled lust, jealousy, and revenge. Early music specialist and Grammy® winning conductor, Stephen Stubbs (Agrippina, 2014), will lead another exceptional ensemble of artists. Sung in English with English supertitles.
