Semi­ramide (de­layed live screen­ing from Met­ro­pol­i­tan Opera)

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - THEATRE -

Key Theatre, March 12, 5.55pm

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.
