THE NOBLE CRUSADER
Outside Jerusalem, Rinaldo, the knight, stands alongside his troops in preparation for battle. When Argante, the Saracen king, and Armida, his sorceress queen, kidnap Rinaldo's beloved, he must overcome a series of battles and trials to save her — trials including mermaids, spirits, and dragons!
This opera, full of sorcery, seductions, and secret disguises — composed in 1711, Handel's first for the London stage — catapulted the composer to stardom. Portland Opera brings it to you for the first time, with new costumes and sets designed especially for the intimate Newmark Theatre. Portland Baroque Orchestra joins us again in the pit, repeating their wildly successful 2009 collaboration with us on La Calisto.
Sung in Italian with English projections above the stage.
