Getting my Ancient Warrior Woman on.

Getting my Ancient Warrior Woman on.

Based on Voltaire's tragedy Semiramis, Rossini’s final Italian opera (1823) about a power-hungry Babylonian Queen who murdered her husband does NOT end happily ever after! This rarely-performed tour de force is a sumptuous masterpiece, perfectly suited to the intimacy and extraordinary acoustics of The Grand Opera House. 

Starring Lindsay Ohse as Semiramide, Aleksandra Romano as Arsace, Timothy Augustin as Idreno, and Daniel Mobbs as Assur. Maestro Anthony Barrese conducts and Dean Anthony directs. 

(Featuring the OperaDelaware Orchestra and Chorus. Sung in Italian, with projected English Supertitles.)

Kind words for Semiramide
