Hradamist – King of Armenia – Opera By Handel

Hradamist was the king of Armenia in 51-53 and 54-55. In the book “Annals” by Latin historian Tacitus, Hradamist (Rhadamistus) was distinguished by bodily strength and was well versed in the arts and sciences.

Pretending that he had quarreled with his father, he left for Armenia and was warmly received. He would then start inciting the Armenian nobles to revolt.

Handel’s opera Radamisto was played at almost all well-known venues in Europe, including the arena of the Colosseum. We bring to your attention the troupe of the Vienna Academy from 2010.
