The arrival of the Queen of Sheba comes from Solomon (HWV 67), an oratorio by George Frideric Handel.

Its libretto is based on the biblical stories of wise king Solomon and is attributed to Newburgh Hamilton. The music was composed between May 5 and June 13, 1748 and the first performance took place in London on March 17, 1749.

Handel's "Arrival of the Queen of Sheba" is one of his many biblical oratorios and was first performed in 1748. Sheba, the powerful Queen and her entourage travels to the Holy Temple in Jerusalem to meet the wise King Solomon. Tradition states that after Solomon correctly answered riddled that she asked, a romance developed. From this encounter Sheba bore Solomon's child, King Menelek, the founder of the Ethiopian empire.
