Set in 16th-century India, Il Paria is a powerful and moving story of impossible love, social barriers and religious intolerance. Donizetti was particularly proud of his work, reusing many of its melodies in future compositions. Returning to Opera Rara following our multi award-winning recording of Rossini’s Semiramide, Albina Shagimuratova leads a stellar cast including René Barbera, singing one of the most demanding roles ever written for tenor, and the talented Georgian baritone Misha Kiria in title character.
Opera Rara celebrates its 50th birthday in 2020 with the release of Donizetti’s Il Paria. Conducted by former Artistic Director Sir Mark Elder, Donizetti’s Il Paria was recorded in the studio prior to a performance at London’s Barbican Centre June 2019. Il Paria was Donizetti’s 13th opera and his first in his new position as Director of the Royal Theatre San Carlo in Naples.
