Summary
"Live from the Zurich Opera House, Cecilia Bartoli stars in the virtuoso title role of Handel's drama of ambition, vanity and seduction. Now one of Handel's most popular operas, Semele contains some of his best vocal music, including 'Where'er you walk' and the show-stopping 'mirror aria' 'Myself I shall adore', in which Semele spectacularly serenades her own reflection"-- Container
