Il Pirata at Teatro Real, Madrid 2019

Music by Vincenzo Bellini (1801-1835)
Libretto by Felice Romani, based on the work Bertram, Ou le Pirate (1822) by Justin Séverin Taylor, translated to French by Charles Maturin

It is the story of a young man daring, rebelling against oppression and injustice, but condemned to suffer an amorous misadventure; his beloved, married by obligation to his enemy, with whom she also has a child. The enemy in question, the embodiment of the most despotic power.

Conductor Bellini deliberately looked for an innovative style of composition and made a special effort to obtain an intimate correspondence between the music and the text. The Pirate will be the trampoline from which Bellini would achieve international success and become Maestro de Bel Canto.
