The English Concert

Handel's Rinaldo (opera in concert)
Sunday, March 25, 2018 2 PM Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage
URL Copied
Harry Bicket by Richard Haughton
Handel knew how to put on a show. With Rinaldo, the first Italian opera written for the London stage, he created a thrilling crowd-pleaser. Rinaldo dazzles with its expressive arias, like the plaintive “Lascia ch’io pianga,” one of the most popular soprano arias ever written. Rinaldo’s spectacular instrumental writing is unsurpassed, with rousing trumpets, drums, strings, and oboe in the martial aria “Or la tromba” and show-stopping harpsichord pyrotechnics—originally improvised by Handel—in the fiery aria “Vo’ far guerra.”
