Handel’s Semele, a joint effort by Pacific MusicWorks and the University of Washington School of Music, is a late work by the composer that never fit comfortably into the era’s expectations for either opera or oratorio. A retelling of the classical myth of Semele and Zeus/Jupiter, it’s performed here as the liveliest brand of music theater, full of humor, wit, enchantment, and (literally and figuratively) epiphany.
