Bellini’s “Il Pirata” featuring Gregory Kunde in the leading role at the Gran Teatre del Liceu

2012-12-12

On January 4th and 7th 2013, Barcelona’s Gran Teatre del Liceu will house Vincenzo Bellini’s “Il Pirata”, an opera in 2 acts that will be staged as a concert. Tenor Gregory Kunde will play the leading part – Gualtiero. The tremendous difficulty of the music score poses a real challenge for sopranos and tenors. The work premiered at the Liceu in the 1970/71 season, and that was the only time it has been performed there. Antonino Fogliani will be conducting the Orquestra Sinfónica y Cor del Gran Teatre del Liceu.
