This year’s KunstFestSpiele Herrenhausen in Hannover, Germany was officially opened with a production of Semele Walk – the cast of which were dressed in Vivienne Westwood Couture.

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.
