Rinaldo by Handel

Concert or Performance

3 Dec 2020 to 9 Dec 2020

An absolute must for lovers of Handel, Rinaldo is a towering Baroque opera and a masterpiece of musical drama.

In this magical tale of chivalry and cunning, the knight Rinaldo battles the scheming sorceress Armida to rescue his beloved Almirena. This was the first Italian opera ever written for the London stage, and it catapulted the young Handel to fame and fortune with its brilliant display of arias, duets and orchestral effects, by turns ravishing and thrilling.

Countertenor Jake Arditti, who last wowed us as Nero in The Coronation of Poppea (2017), returns to dazzle again as the heroic Rinaldo. Emma Pearson (Athalia, 2018) brings her golden and wonderfully flexible soprano to the evil sorceress Armida and Carlo Vistoli (Artaserse, 2018) brings his beautifully burnished countertenor tones to the role of Goffredo. Multiple Helpmann Award-winner Taryn Fiebig returns to Pinchgut to delight us in the role of Almirena.

Rinaldo is an undeniable show-stopper, with sublime arias, lush instrumentation and high drama. Experience the joy of Handel at his best, brought to life by one of the best early music companies in the world. This will be a performance not to be missed.
