Join Classical 91.5 FM for the Chicago's Lyric Opera's presentation of Rinaldo.

The Bucksbaum Family Lyric Opera broadcast series concludes on Saturday, June 30 at 1 p.m. with Handel's Rinaldo. With Jerusalem as the prize, General Goffredo and his chief knight Rinaldo are battling it out with King Argante. But the king’s lover and ally is the sorceress Armida — and she uses every trick in her arsenal to help win the war. Good thing Rinaldo has some supernatural reinforcements of his own!
