David Daniels' Rinaldo is surely the equal of his illustrious 18th-century predecessors. His countertenor is one of the most accomplished voices I have heard...

As Armida, Noëmi Nadelmann's voices started where her legs ended, and she threw coloratura at us as though it was going out of fashion (astride her pet Hydra being a particularly fabulous show-stopper).

David Walker as Goffredo is no vocal slouch either; his voice is brighter edged than Daniels', and almost as fluent.

"Harry Bicket led from the harpsichord and conjured his own miracles from the pit. He looked quite overwhelmed at the screams of approval that met everybody at curtain call." (Opera Now)

"David Alden's new production of Rinaldo was a riot from beginning to end.... A great and representative show." (The Times)
