Crusaders and sorcerers converge in the city of Jerusalem in one of Handel’s most famous operas. Set during the first crusade, Christian warrior Rinaldo enters battle to win the hand of his general’s daughter, Almirena. While Rinaldo battles to defeat the king of Jerusalem, Almirena is taken and cursed by the sorceress queen. A story of love and adventure, this production is full of magic — from sorcery to song.
