Experience Handel's first opera through the lens of a fantasy role-playing adventure. Crusader knight Rinaldo loves Almirena, but she has been kidnapped by sorceress Armida, who is in league with Rinaldo’s enemy Argante. Vowing to rescue her and defeat the Saracen enemy, the knight heads into battle, ready to risk all for the woman he loves. Will he prevail? With some magic, a roll of the die, and a little help from his friends, he just might.
