Nightly Met Opera Streams

A rarely seen Rossini grand opera, Armida had its very first Met performances during the 2009–10 season. Inspired by Tasso’s epic poem La Gerusalemme Liberata, this expansive musical masterpiece provides a showcase for one dazzling diva and no fewer than six high-flying tenors. A Crusades-era Damascene sorceress who uses her overpowering beauty to further her ambitious plans, even the title character is not immune to the mysterious magic of love. The true drama stems from the question of whether her allure and her enchantments will be enough to turn an enemy into a paramour.
