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 her Met role debut, in the title role of the murderous Queen of Babylon.

Meade squares off in breathtaking duets with Elizabeth DeShong in the trouser role of Arsace, Commander of the Assyrian Army.

Gioachino Rossini's opera also features Javier Camarena as the Indian king Idreno, Ildar Abdrazakov as Prince Assur, and Ryan Speedo Green as the high priest Oroe.
