MET Live in HD: Semiramide

Saturday, March 10 1:00 pm

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. A free talk about this opera will be given in the studio on the lower level before the broadcast at 12:15 PM (45 minutes before the start time) by Jim Pugh.
