- Semiramis, Queen of Babylon, must choose her new husband after killing her husband King Ninus. She chooses the young commander Arsace, without knowing that it is about his son that everyone thought dead ... Presented for the first time in cinema, Rossini's dramatic opera is a key work of the Italian composer, based on a tragedy that Voltaire wrote inspired by an Assyrian legend. A woman tormented by her past, taken unawares by the present and with a disastrous future, this much-loved role in the bel canto repertoire goes to the American Angela Meade, who is also taking her first steps on the big screen!
