We had the chance to sit down "In The Studio" with Will Ferguson from Opera Omaha's Semele recently. Not his first time to our city, Will tells us all about playing the character of Jupiter...what it's like to sing an opera in English...and more on the love and tragedy from Semele.
From Opera Omaha:
Visionary director James Darrah and his creative team Chromatic (Agrippina, 2014 and A Flowering Tree, 2015) return to Opera Omaha with a new production of Handel’s Semele – a darkly comic mythological story of a mortal woman’s tryst with a dangerous god. Featuring some of Handel's most glorious orchestral and virtuosic vocal writing, Semele is an opera of unbridled lust, jealousy, and revenge. Early music specialist and Grammy® winning conductor, Stephen Stubbs (Agrippina, 2014),will lead another exceptional ensemble of artists.
