First production of this classic opera at the Met in nearly 25 years is a beautiful, immersive tragedy from master Italian composer Rossini stunningly filmed in high definition. A rare treat!
This masterpiece of dazzling vocal fireworks makes a rare Met appearance—its first in nearly 25 years—with Maurizio Benini on the podium. The all-star bel canto cast features Angela Meade in the title role of the murderous Queen of Babylon, who squares off in breathtaking duets with Arsace, a trouser role sung by Elizabeth DeShong. Javier Camarena, Ildar Abdrazakov, and Ryan Speedo Green complete the stellar cast.
“Excellent... melting and nuanced.” – New York Times
“Angela Meade is a vocal powerhouse.” — Financial Times
“Angela Meade’s high-horsepower voice and hummingbird nimbleness is a rare match for Semiramide’s semiquavers.” – New York Magazine
