ENDLESS PLEASURE. ENDLESS LOVE. In Handel’s sensuous and sparkling charmer, an unsophisticated but ambitious maiden journeys outside her comfort zone to the rarified realm of the “beautiful people.” Elegant and expressive, this all-new production stars the incomparable Stephanie Blythe as Juno, the goddess queen bent on teaching the interloper a lesson. Highlighting the opera’s universal themes and sense of play, our debut presentation of this early work explores what it means to live life to the fullest.

Audio described performance for visually impaired patrons available on Sunday, February 22. Description begins 10 minutes prior to the beginning of the matinee.
Legendary mezzo-soprano Stephanie Blythe returns to Seattle Opera for one of her favorite roles—the jealous goddess Juno. Tenor Alek Shrader and Soprano Brenda Rae make their Seattle Opera debuts as her philandering husband, Jupiter; and Semele, the vain mortal woman he loves.
When Jupiter, King of the Gods, carries the beautiful princess Semele off to a magical bower, his jealous wife, Juno, goes into action and provokes the seductive Semele to suicidal arrogance.
