Emele – a new opera by Simmonds and Willcock

7 July @ 7:30 pm

£25 – £35

@emele is a contemporary light hearted twist on Handel’s great Semele.  A cheating government minister, an abandoned wife and a scheming press agent who turns on his boss: Sound familiar? Any similarity is entirely intentional.

These are all characters in @emele, the first production since lockdown by Oxfordshire Contemporary Opera. The heroine is an Instagram influencer and her lover, Jupiter, is in disguise as a government minister who aims to be ‘King of the world’. His vengeful wife, Juno, and Mercury, the messenger God who becomes a Cummingsesque figure, conspire to twist the press and public opinion. Comedy, plotting and intrigue abound until Jupiter gets his come-uppance in a #metoo ending.
