Armida - Live in HD (DVD) - Met Opera

Price: $40.00 Members: $36.00




This mythical story of a sorceress who enthralls men in her island prison has inspired operatic settings by a multitude of composers. Renée Fleming stars in the title role of Rossini's version, opposite no fewer than six tenors. Tony Award winner Mary Zimmerman returns to direct this new production of a work she describes as "a buried treasure, a box of jewels."  The fanciful and magical tale, Zimmerman says, "has an epic, enchanted quality and a tremendous visual element."
