Semele Walk with costumes by Vivienne Westwood is going to be performed at Sydney Festival next year.

” The Opera, written by Georg Friedrich Händel in 1744, is based on the Greek mythology of Semele, mother of Dionysus. Semele’s self-destructive nature is relevant to the Dionysian society in which we live today, faced with a destruction of our own making – climate change.”
