OPERA in Space is presenting The Semele Project on September 23 (2.30pm) in the ballroom of Herstmonceux Castle.
The bold re-imagining of Händel’s Masterpiece that includes some of his most memorable arias such as, “Where’er you walk”.
Semele is the story of a beautiful but vain young mistress who is deceived and destroyed by a jealous and powerful wife.
Opera in Space, with its cast of five classical musicians that have performed with the English National Opera at such prestigious venues as Glyndebourne and Aldeburgh, will take you on a magical journey through the Castle ending up in the magnificent ballroom. As the drama unfolds each character takes you to their own secret corner of the Castle to tell you the story of the doomed marriage of Athamas and Semele.
Tickets (to include a complimentary glass of Prosecco) cost £20 on the day or £15 in advance.
