Watch this video of a brilliant complete performance of Handel’s “Semele”
by Garsington Opera if you have not already seen it.

Would that every Handel opera could be given this treatment: arresting
scenic design, engaging action, singing ranging from capable to
outstanding, and acting! It is full of stage creatures (including the
chorus) of whom much physicality is asked. And all this frames what Alex
Ross once described as “the unstoppable beauty of...Handel aria(s)”
ensembles and choruses. Watch it, it will not be up forever!
