The city of Nineveh has recently undergone extensive development to become the new capital of the mighty Assyrian empire. It is now a vast metropolis surrounded by massive walls some 12 kilometres in length that encompass an area of hectares 7. While official statistics on the population of Nineveh are not available, it reportedly takes three days to cross the city. This cosmopolitan city is located on the eastern bank of the River Tigris at the intersection of the road which connects the highlands of the north with the prosperous lands of Babylonia and Chaldea in the south. A veritable paradise on earth, the fertile lands surrounding Nineveh are perfect for growing the huge volumes of staple crops such as wheat and barley needed to feed the population of this colossal city. Benefitting from plentiful rainfall, the city is also situated where the River Khosr meets the River Tigris, which guarantees an abundant supply of water. Upstream from the city you will find orchards planted with vines, fruit trees and olive groves. The summer months in Assyria are ferociously hot and are best avoided. Winters are often very wet and the city is transformed into a quagmire. The best times to visit are autumn and spring, when the city has warm days with cool mornings and evenings.

Past Events

A Ninua was an ancient Assyrian city of Upper Mesopotamia , located on the outskirts of Mosul in modern-day northern Iraq. It is located on the eastern bank of the Tigris River and was the capital of the Neo-Assyrian Empire. Today it is a common name for the half of Mosul that lies on the eastern bank of the Tigris and the Nineveh Governorate takes its name from it. It was the largest city in the world for approximately fifty years [2] until the year BC when, after a bitter period of civil war in Assyria, it was sacked by a coalition of its former subject peoples, the Babylonians , Medes , Chaldeans , Persians , Scythians and Cimmerians. The city was never again a political or administrative centre, but by Late Antiquity it was the seat of a Christian bishop. It declined relative to Mosul during the Middle Ages and was mostly abandoned by the 13th century AD. Its ruins lie across the river from the modern-day major city of Mosul , in Iraq's Nineveh Governorate. Large amounts of Assyrian sculpture and other artifacts have been excavated there and are now located in museums around the world. The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant ISIL occupied the site from to , during which time they bulldozed several of the monuments there, caused considerable damage to the others and dug 11 deep trenches. Iraqi forces recaptured the area in January

Josh Armenta was trying to write a vocal piece at his home in San Jose, California. I literally just threw a dart at the map," Armenta said. He came up with Billings, Montana, and Boise, Idaho. Flights to Billings were cheaper, so he took vacation time from his day job and flew there. And they're like, 'Oh, this is really cool.

He spent 16 hours a day for a week writing and finished the skeleton of the work before he returned to California. Indianapolis Opera commissioned the work, which will have its world premiere Saturday. It celebrates chorus master John Schmid, who has been with the opera for 35 years.

Armenta, who now lives in Mexico City, pulled the words for his piece from a poem of the same name by Kenneth Rexroth. Rexroth's "Ice Shall Cover Nineveh" is based on a legend or short story — it's unclear which — about the three wise men's journey after they saw Jesus in the Bethlehem manger. The Bible goes on to say that the men took a route home that avoided King Herod. The legend, however, has that at least one traveled to Nineveh in the Alps — a different city than the ancient Assyrian city that the biblical prophet Jonah preached to after he spent three days inside a whale.

The town turned him away and as a result, ended up covered by a glacier. The first part of "fear no more," which he began in , was when he began writing again. In some ways, it's definitely kind of matured my writing. Armenta thought the plot points of seduction and intrigue would make for good storytelling. Religion was a big part of the Brownsburg where Armenta grew up in during the s and early s.
