Semele : An Opera, Paperback / softback Book


Originally published in 1925, the text for this edition of Semele was compiled from the 1710 edition of Congreve's works and the altered version adopted by Handel and published in 1762.

The work was performed in this form at the New Theatre, Cambridge in February 1925.

Lines omitted by the composer are printed in smaller type, and his interpolations are set within square brackets.

This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in the works of Congreve and Handel.
