Revised edition of “Armide”

Ever since the 17th century the Armida episode from Torquato Tasso’s epic poem “La Gerusalemme liberata” (1575) has been a favourite subject for operas, inspiring works from composers as diverse as Lully and Haydn, Rossini and Dvorák.

Now Bärenreiter is publishing the meticulously revised, corrected and newly engraved vocal score which has been adapted to meet current editorial standards.

• Urtext edition based on the “Gluck Complete Edition”
• Judiciously updated and newly engraved
