Donizetti's three-act tragic opera Belisario was a resounding success in it's day, driven by it's composer's superlative theatrical instinct and his skillful interweaving of intense tragic narrative and emotional pathos. Belisario is betrayed by his wife Antonina, who falsely accuses him of high treason. Belisario is blinded and exiled, with proof of his innocence coming too late, and is mortally wounded during a final military victory. This production was performed and recorded without an audience in Bergamo during the Covid-19 lockdown in November 2020 - a moving performance reflecting a spirit of defiance amidst ruin and darkness.
