The Opera Vlaanderen of Antwerp continues its Rossini Cycle under the musical direction of conductor Alberto Zedda, with the rarely performed opera Armida. Armida is clearly a tenor opera par excellence, as there are four tenors among its main roles, here interpreted by Enea Scala, Robert McPherson, Dario Schmunck and the young Adam Smith.

Director Marianne Clement and her customary set designer Julia Hansen have returned to the Opera Vlaanderen after the successful Giasone by Cavalli released by Dynamic. Here they take a critical look of the world of the noble and heroic knightly ideals are cast aside. However, love here turns into a destructive frenzy.
