Antonin Dvorak: Armida
National Moravian-Silesian Theatre, Ostrava
National Moravian-Silesian Theatre Orchestra and Chorus
Robert Jindra, conductor

CAST: Dana Buresová (Armida); Tomás Cerný (Rinald); David Szendiuch (Petr); Martin Gurbal (King Hydraot); Ulf Paulsen (Ismen); Martin Bárta (Bohumir); Peter Svetlik (Dudo); Martin Srejma (Sven); Matej Chadima (Gernand); Ondrej Koplik (Roger); Roman Vlkovic (Ubald); Martin Stolba (Muezzin); Marianna Pillárova (Siren)

The fearsome yet sentimental sorceress Armida is a denizen of Tasso's epic poem Jerusalem Liberated. Her story has inspired operas by composers ranging from Lully and Gluck, to Haydn and Rossini, and this version by Dvorak is a true rarity.
