Rossini:  Semiramide.  March 10, also in HD.
Rossini's Semiramide, the last of his opera seria, is seldom performed because of the problems of finding a cast. It requires a soprano, mezzo, tenor, and bass with extreme agility of voice and good acting skills. Piecutred is Elizabeth Deshong, this year's Arsace. Angela Meade, Javier Camarena, and Ildur Abdrazakov are Semiramide, Idreno, and Assur. This radio performance can also be seen on the wide screen in HD.
