Meyerbeer is probably best remembered for his contributions to French grand opera in Les Huguenots, Le prophète and L’Africaine. Semiramide is an early work dealing with legends of the earlier part of the life of Semiramis, Queen of Babylon. The plot is one of some confusion, incorporating a multiplicity of disguises, where brother does not recognise sister, and the heroine of the title masquerades as her own son. Musically the opera is a brilliant composition, an impressive example of the Italian style, with a strong Rossinian feel.
