This season, Rossini’s powerful and poignant Semiramide will be seen on the Royal Opera House stage for the first time, with Joyce DiDonato in the title role. With performances from November 19 through December 16, London audiences will have the opportunity to see Ms. DiDonato’s unforgettable portrayal of the tragically fated ruler, which she debuted last season at the Bayerische Staatsoper to great acclaim:

“Her vocal performance was brilliant, marked by a wonderful legato and sparkling coloratura – every asset of a true bel canto artist.” (Bachtrack)

The cast features Michele Pertusi, Daniela Barcellona and Lawrence Brownlee, with all dates conducted by Sir Antonio Pappano and featuring a production by David Alden, first seen in Munich.
