City Recital Hall – HAYDN’S ARMIDA

22, 24, 28 JUNE, 7PM, 26 JUNE, 5PM

“Their performances sell out, their audiences are increasingly international, and their repuation for excellence is well earned” – The Financial Times

Join us for an epic experience this June as Pinchgut Opera once again unearths a rarely performed gem. Fresh from her stunning performances at the Metropolitan Opera in New York, soprano Rachelle Durkin performs the title role of Armida. Swedish tenor Leif Aruhn-Solén joins as the love lost knight Rinaldo and the indomitable Antony Walker conducts the Orchestra of the Antipodes on period instruments.

Don’t miss this magnificent performance as Pinchgut Opera presents an evening of sorcery, vengeance, seduction and heartbreak. Haydn proclaimed it his best opera.
