The name Semele, like other elements of Dionysiac cult (thyrsus, dithyramb) are manifestly not Greek (Burkert 1985), apparently Phrygian (Kerenyi 1976 p107) and the myth of her father Cadmus gives him a Phoenician origin.
The story formed the basis for the secular oratorio, Semele (1744) by George Frideric Handel and for the opera, Semele (1707) by John Eccles.

Christ's gnostic birthday, like 'Chris's', is the day of the festival of Dionysus, celebrated throughout Anatolia and the Aegean Islands, who was also in his second incarnation the Son of God Zeus by a mortal woman Semele, and is likewise the progenitor of 'tragic passion'.
In the Qur'an Jesus is universally referred to as Isa, or Esau, like Adam the 'man of blood', the 'red man' of Edom - a title supposedly adopted by Muhammad from Jewish satire.

 Records International Catalogue October 2003
One of four extant zarzuelas by Literes, this work dates from 1718 and is based on an episode from Ovid's Metamorphoses.
The early zarzuelas better demonstrate the combination of Italian opera influences and the native Spanish stage plays for which music provided coherent structure (in this piece, Semele never sings and is portrayed by an actress).
Choruses introduce the acts and emphazise particular situations while striking set-pieces (fire, shipwreck and war) are given vivid musical portrayals.
