    Best ''Semiramide'' I've ever seen

    Credibility of plot is not the strong point of this opera. It seems that June Anderson (Semiramide) murdered her husband (the late king) and took the throne herself. It turns out that it's all Samuel Ramey's fault (he's Assur). The high priest knows what happened but never tells anyone until Marilyn Horne (Arsace) comes back home (Arsace is Semiramide's son, only he doesn't know that). The ghost of the murdered king shows up to let everybody know that something is seriously wrong (although he doesn't say what). Semiramide decides to marry Arsace, although he already has a girlfriend (somehow, she doesn't recognize her own son). Arsace, seeking revenge on Assur and swinging his sword around in pitch darkness, mistakenly slices up his mother instead. Astonishingly, she drops dead on the stage without singing another note. Arsace takes a minute or two to feel bad about this before marrying his girlfriend and taking the throne. Don't let any of this put you off; drama does not depend on plot, especially if it's music drama. The Met's production is absolutely terrific and they couldn't have assembled a better cast. June Anderson, for all her flaws, is the best Semiramide since Sutherland; Marilyn Horne, even so late in her career, sings Arsace's music with incomparable bravura; and Samuel Ramey's combination of technique and swagger make him a perfect Assur. The remaining singers are uniformly excellent and James Conlon leads the cast, orchestra and chorus in the best performance of this opera I've ever seen. Rossini's music is, of course, absolutely wonderful. Don't miss this one.
