As a Christian army prepares to lay siege to Jerusalem during the First Crusade, politics, passion, and magic complicate matters. An exotic story of war, religion, and sorcery, Rinaldo explores the conflict between duty and desire and reveals the danger of falling in love with the enemy.
Handel brings some of his most ravishing music to this glittering masterwork of Baroque opera.
