Is love what you think it is? Ahead of our performance of Handel’s Semele at the Royal Festival Hall on Wed 18 October, 2017, we asked social philosopher Roman Krznaric how audiences would have viewed Semele’s story differently through the ages.
Roman Krznaric is joined by the OAE’s Martin Kelly for the pre-concert talk from 6pm in the Level Five Function Room.
