New CD Release: David Parry conducts Il Pirata

30 April 2012

A new release by Opera Rara, David Parry conducts the London Philharmonic Orchestra in this three-CD recording of Vincenzo Bellini’s third opera, Il Pirata. First premiered at La Scala in 1827, Il Pirata tells a story of shipwreck, duels and ill-fated romance: “an exceptional example of early romantic opera at its most dramatically potent.” (Opera Rara)
