Here we propose, to the best of our knowledge, a novel transparency effect in cylindrical all-dielectric metamaterials. We show that the cancellation of multipole moments of the same kind leads to almost zero radiation losses in all-dielectric metamaterials due to the counter-directed multipolar moments in metamolecule. The nullifying of multipoles, mainly dipoles, and suppression of higher multipoles, results in the ideal transmission of an incident wave through the designed metamaterial. The observed effect could pave the road to the new generation of light-manipulating transparent metadevices such as filters, waveguides, and cloaks.
