Product Description

Rossini's Semiramide at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden (November 2017) Opera on 3

Presented by Donald Macleod, a Rossini masterpiece not seen at the Royal Opera House for more than 120 years: Semiramide, the dramatic story of the Queen of Assyria, who conspired with her then lover Assur, an army commander, to poison her husband, King Nino, whose corpse comes back from the underworld to claim justice. As if things weren't complicated enough, Semiramide now loves a younger warrior, Arsace, and wants him to be king, but unbeknown to her, he's her long-lost son - and discovering it triggers an ending of tragic proportions. Superstar mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato takes the title role, with mezzo-soprano Daniela Barcellona as Arsace and the bass Michele Pertusi as Assur. Sir Antonio Pappano conducts the Orchestra and Chorus of the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, in a production by David Alden.
