Donizetti: Belisario / Dario Solari, Donata D'Annunzio Lombardi, Annunziata Vestri, Andeka Gorrotxategui (live, 2012) [DVD]

Notes & Reviews:

Despite meeting with success upon its premiere in 1836, Gaetano Donizetti himself considered his Belisario to be a step below his finest effort, 1835s Lucia di Lammermoor. Composed in a style befitting its elevated, heroic and noble subject matter (high declamation, monological rather than dialogue driven, highly symphonic in style, etc... ), it nonetheless worked in the theater and testifies to Donizetti's superior inventiveness and theatrical sense. Recorded live at the Teatro Donizetti in Bergamo, Italy in 2012, this Bongiovanni release marks the opera's first appearance on DVD.
