Pinchgut Opera, Sydney's newest opera company, delivers a witty, seductive and compelling performance of Handel's Semele. A live recording, from their first ever production, Semele is a fiery tale of the affair between Semele and Jupiter. Many will know of the opera from the famous aria 'Where'er you walk'. This bawdy tale is brilliantly performed by some of the best singers Australia has produced - Anna Ryberg, Sally-Anne Russell, Angus Wood, Stephen Bennett and Tobias Cole.
