Carmen Romeu to sing the role of Armida in Rinaldo at Ópera de Oviedo, with César San Martín as the Christian magician


Rinaldo, the first of Händel's operas to be composed in England, will be staged at the Ópera de Oviedo from October 6th through 12th. In the love story between the characters Almirena and Rinaldo, which is set in the Holy Land during the Crusades, the role of Armida will be sung by Valencia-born soprano Carmen Romeu, who will soon be singing in La casa de Bernarda Alba at the Teatro Cervantes of Málaga. The cast of Rinaldo also includes César San Martin, in the role of the Christian magician. Aarón Zapico will conduct, at the helm of the Orquesta Oviedo Filarmonía. Stage direction and videos are by Kobie Van Rensburg.
