Bel Canto at Caramoor presents Il pirata by Bellini

This season’s operatic centerpiece is a semi-staged production of Bellini’s 1827 breakthrough opera Il pirata (“The Pirate”). Artist-In-Residence Angela Meade, whose revelatory Caramoor performance of the same composer’s Norma was hailed as “a truly perfect night at the opera” by Das Opernglas, takes on the demanding role of Imogene for the first time in her stellar career. Tenor Santiago Ballerini, who triumphed here two seasons ago in La favorite, returns as Gualtiero, the pirate of the title, joined by the brilliant young bass Harold Wilson in his Caramoor debut.
