Rinaldo (Handel)
‘On a chess board: war, passion and love’
2 Shows
25 Apr and 26 Apr
 Opera de Tenerife

This in one of the most famous operas by composer George Frideric Handel, with libretto in Italian by Giacomo Rossi and inspired by the poem La Gerusalemme liberata by Torquato Tasso. It was premiered on 24 February 1711 at Queen’s Theatre in Haymarket, London.

In the time of the crusades, the evil Saracen sorceress Armida kidnaps sweet Almirena, to distract her finacée Rinaldo -the most courageous Christian paladin- from the battlefield, but she ends up falling in love with him. Ardent battles, spells and beautiful melodies like ‘Lascia ch’io pianga’ make it one of the most applauded titles by Handel. This Ópera de Tenerife production is an adaptation for the whole family to enjoy.
