Bellini’s Il Pirata – Revival (First Time Live in HD)

Soprano Diana Damrau stars in this Bellini vehicle for bel canto pyrotechnics, the story of a woman driven mad by love for her exiled pirate. Tenor Javier Camarena shows off his spectacular high notes as the buccaneer of the title, with baritone Christopher Maltman as the villainous Ernesto who thwarts their affair. Maurizio Benini conducts the striking production.

Tentative Run Time: 3:15

Maurizio Benini (Conductor); Diana Damrau (Imogene), Javier Camarena (Gualtiero), Christopher Maltman (Ernesto), Nicolas Testé (Goffredo)
