Welcome to the reloaded White Shirt live comment thread for Rossini‘s “Semiramide” (2017. Actually LIVE!) from Bayerische Staatsoper Munich, staged by David Alden, with Michele Mariotti conducting. This time, without hiccups and tech glitches!
Cast Listing (*AAAAAAAaaaaaaaah!*)
Semiramide – Joyce DiDonato

Assur – Alex Esposito
Idreno – Lawrence Brownlee
Azema – Elsa Benoit
Oroe – Simone Alberghini
Mitrane – Galeano Salas

The production is not available visa the BSO any longer, but has seeped into circulation thanks some valiant captures at first hour (you know who you are!) and the weekend re-stream on demand, which likely everyone else will have captured and filed away for frequent enjoyment. (If you would like to liveblog along and do not have watching access, drop us a comment below or write us a private message)
Today’s liveblog continues on form yesterday and will only cover pt. 2 (starting after the intermission) to assure work capability of assorted White Shirts who, after a four-hour Rossini night, might have problems with office performance tomorrow.
