Queen of Sheba
A 1932 ballet by Ottorino Respighi entitled Queen of Sheba recounts the tale of her visit to King Solomon, and was quite a grand affair.
In addition to the orchestra, an offstage band and chorus, a wind machine, narrator, tenor, and a sitar and other exotic instruments were added.
The cast featured nearly a thousand performers. There were, however, only eleven performances. I wonder why?
