An absolute must for lovers of Handel, Rinaldo is a towering Baroque opera and a masterpiece of musical drama. It catapulted the young Handel to fame and fortune with its brilliant display of sublime arias and duets, lush instrumentation and orchestral effects, both ravishing and thrilling.
English countertenor Jake Arditti returns to Australia to dazzle as the heroic Rinaldo. Emma Pearson brings her golden toned soprano to the evil sorceress Armida, with the divine Alexandra Oomens as Almirena.
Experience the joy of Handel at his best, brought to shimmering life in the inimitable Pinchgut way.
