Il crociato in Egitto (The Crusader in Egypt) is an opera in two acts by Giacomo Meyerbeer, with a libretto by Gaetano Rossi. It was first performed at La Fenice theatre, Venice on 7 March 1824. The part of Armando was sung by the famous castrato, Giovanni Battista Velluti; the opera was probably the last ever written to feature a castrato. It is the last of Meyerbeer's series of operas in Italian, and became the foundation of the composer's international success.

His Italian operas divide themselves into three pairs of two. In the third pair, L’Esule di Granata (Milan, 1822) and Il Crociato in Egitto (Venice, 1824), the impulse to dismantle and reconstruct the traditions of bel canto was carried even further than before

His Italian operas divide themselves into three pairs of two. In the third pair, L’Esule di Granata (Milan, 1822) and Il Crociato in Egitto (Venice, 1824), the impulse to dismantle and reconstruct the traditions of bel canto was carried even further than before. Development of the introduzione, a fluent handling and modification of structure, an imaginative expansion of forces, showed awareness of both the French traditions of grandeur and Rossini’s experiments in the opera seria in Naples.

Il crociato in Egitto was the last in a series of Italian operas written by Giacomo Meyerbeer between 1817 and 1824.

Giacomo Meyerbeer, one of the most important and influential opera composers of the nineteenth century, enjoyed a fame during his lifetime unrivaled by any of his contemporaries.

The fourth volume presents Meyerbeer's fifth and sixth Italian operas, written towards the end of his decisive sojourn in Italy, where for eight years (1816-24) he made the operatic traditions of bel canto his own, while constantly expanding his own powerful dramatic instincts. His Italian operas divide themselves into three pairs of two. In the third pair, L'Esule di Granata (Milan, 1822) and Il Crociato in Egitto (Venice, 1824), the impulse to dismantle and reconstruct the traditions of bel canto was carried even further than before. Development of the introduzione, a fluent handling and modification of structure, an imaginative expansion of forces, showed awareness of both the French traditions of grandeur and Rossini's experiments in the opera seria in Naples. All Meyerbeer's Italian operas are concerned with situations of exile and imposture, search and restitution, confusion and fulfillment, and none more so then Il Crociato. This recurrent theme certainly reflected a subliminal thematic treatment of issues at work in the composer's life: his view of himself as a searching artist, an alien Jew, an outsider living away from his Prussian home and seeking his true metier. The success of the Crociato enabled Meyerbeer to effect a move to Paris, the operatic capital of the world, where his career would find its true artistic home.
