About this event

Glyndebourne Festival Opera makes its annual Proms visit with Robert Carsen's new production of Rinaldo, the latest in the company's distinguished line of Handel stagings, not least the sensational Julius Caesar also seen at the Proms in 2005.

Rinaldo is the work with which Handel made his London debut (exactly 300 years ago), an Italian opera set during the First Crusade. Out to impress, the composer assembled a score of great vitality and colour.

Period-music specialist Ottavio Dantone conducts a strong cast led by Sonia Prina in the title-role of the heroic crusader with Sandrine Piau as his beloved Almirena.

There will be two intervals of 20 minutes
