The best show in London at the moment is Covent Garden's "Semele" and if your pocket doesn't run to the seat prices there, the closest experience available is this recording . . . It's a non-stop stream of gorgeous arias and choruses . . . Kathleen Battle and Michael Chance are among the top-flight singers.
