    Sir Mark Elder conducts Rossini’s operatic tragedy, which pushes singers to the limits of expression in recounting the story of Semiramide, Queen of Babylon, and her entrapment in a web of incest and revenge at the behest of her long-lost son.

    Vocal athleticism, vivid storytelling and Classical poise combine in Rossini’s rarely heard opera, performed in concert.
