Introduction

One of Handel's most flamboyant accomplishments

Handel's first big hit for the London stage, Rinaldo contains some of his most ravishing music and is an exotic story of war, religion, love, and sorcery. As a Christian army prepares to lay siege to Jerusalem during the First Crusade, politics, passion, and magic complicate matters. Glynis Leyshon will direct this masterpiece of Baroque opera.
