Handel (1685-1759)

Description:

Rinaldo, a crusader soldier, and his girlfriend, Almirena, want to marry, but Almirena's father, Goffredo, refuses to recognize their union until the war is won. At this time, the enemy army, King Argante of Jerusalem, offers a "three-day truce. This is Argante's plan to do something about his army's inferiority, and during this time, he uses the power of his lover, the witch Armida, to kidnap Almirena. Rinaldo follows Almirena to the wizard's cave, but he falls into Almida's trap and is kidnapped. The four-way relationship between Argante and Almirena, and Rinaldo and Armida (?) that ensues further complicates the story. The story is further complicated by the quadrilateral relationship between Argante and Almirena, and Rinaldo and Armida.... The fate of the lovers?Because of the fantastical content of the wizard's activities, various restrictions would occur on a stage with actual human performers, but there are no such problems with puppet theater. With puppetry, however, there is no such problem. The audience is free to play tricks as they wish and to have imaginary creatures appear. The music is by the German baroque ensemble "Lautenbau der Berlin" (Berlin Lauten Company), and the audience can hear Handel's magnificent performance supported by innovative sounds and solid interpretations. Of course, the singers sing to perfection. In between the puppets' performances of the story, scenes of the singers singing are interspersed, a device that allows the audience to enjoy the performance without any discomfort at all. For those who prefer to listen only to the sound, a bonus CD of all the songs is also included, as well as a video of the making of this project. The set is designed to be enjoyed in a variety of ways. Naxos Japan
