The Trinity Laban Opera Ensemble perform the first of a four night run of Handel's 'Rinaldo' this evening. This dramatic tale of magic and mystery was the first of many operas that Handel wrote for the London stage and was a sensational hit at the time. Replete with mermaids and dragons, royalty and knights, magicians and sirens, this ancient tale should captivate and move in equal measure.
Take a listen to this brief excerpt of the production from rehearsals at Blackheath Halls:
