An opera written long ago… performed in a galaxy far, far away…
It is a period of civil war. The Empire is close to defeat and has agreed to a truce with the Legion, led by Commander Goffredo and his faithful soldier Rinaldo. However, the evil Lord Argante and Queen Armida, using the dark side of the force, have planned to use Princess Almirena as bait to destroy the Legion and rule the galaxy. Fresco Opera Theatre will present Handel’s Rinaldo transformed into a science fiction adventure. The force is strong with Fresco in its mission to present opera in fresh exciting ways.
Will Rinaldo use his powers of the force to overcome the Empire and restore order and freedom to the galaxy or will the dark side prevail? Join Fresco Opera as they bring you through this operatic intergalactic journey.
