Semiramide, melodramma tragico in two acts to a libretto by Gaetano Rossi, was first performed at Teatro La Fenice, Venice, on 3rd February 1823. The singers in the first performances were Isabella Colbran (Semiramide), Rosa Mariani (Arsace), Filippo Galli (Assur), John Sinclair (Idreno), Matilde Spagna (Azema), Luciano Mariani (Oroe). The story is taken from the tragedy by Voltaire (1748). Semiramide (Semiramis) has been Queen of Assyria for fifteen years, since the death of King Nino, her husband and the mysterious disappearance of their young son Ninia, heir to the throne, both of whom were victims of a conspiracy. Semiramide now finds herself called upon to nominate her successor.
