Armide was the last tragédie en musique to come from the collaboration of Lully and his librettist Quinault. The subject – the enchantress Armide's unhappy love for the knight Renaud – is drawn from Tasso's Gerusalemme liberata. 5 February 1686. The masses hastened to discover Lully's eleventh and last tragédie lyrique. And they were not mistaken: Armide, a genuine masterpiece, would be crowned with lasting success. Here, the classic tragédie lyrique achieved total fruition, on the literary and musical levels alike.
