Il pirata launch and Belisario fundraiser
Crush Room, Royal Opera House, Covent Garden
Opera Rara hosted a lunch to celebrate its new release – Bellini’s Il pirata on Thursday 19th April 2012
During the event, we announced our forthcoming world première studio recording of Donizetti’s Belisario.
Belisario, a triumph on stages during the 19th century, marks the second in our ongoing series of recordings with the BBC Symphony Orchestra and we were delighted that the two sopranos starring in the recording, Joyce El-Khoury and Camilla Roberts, were on hand to entertain guests with excerpts from this rarely-performed opera. Discover how to support our restoration of Belisario. Not only will we produce the long-overdue first ever studio recording of this wonderful work, but we will also provide a rare opportunity for audiences to hear the opera live in concert on Sunday 28th October 2012 at the Barbican Hall, London.
