My best photo from IL CORSARO

Giuseppe Cipali as Corrado and Doina Dimitriu as Gulnara

And I even have the DVD, with other singers, Adriana Damato is Gulnara:

Verdi: Il Corsaro

Zvetan Michailov (tenor), Renato Bruson (baritone), Michela Sburlati (soprano) & Adriana Damato (soprano)
Orchestra e Coro del Teatro Regio di Parma, Renato Palumbo (conductor) & Lamberto Puggelli (director)
Il Corsaro is still one of Verdi’s less known and performed operas. Chronologically speaking, it belongs to the famous ”years in the galley”, even though it dates from a period (the autumn of 1848) when the composer’s name, in Italy, could already be considered established. Although this is considered one of Verdi’s minor works, there are many exciting and poignant passages in it, and the tight dramatic action makes for music that has a pressing and incisive rhythm. The renowned baritone Renato Bruson and conductor Renato Palumbo stand out in the cast. The video recording makes the most of Lamberto Puggelli’s beautiful sets. Subtitles in 7 languages (Italian, English, German, French, Spanish, Chinese and Japanese).
