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.

Please join us for a complimentary pre-opera lecture in The Paramount Theater Auditorium at 12:00PM.  The lecture for Semiramide will be conducted by Tim Snider, attorney and host of WTJU’s Sunday Opera Matinee.

Production a gift of The Lila Acheson and DeWitt Wallace Fund for Lincoln Center
