“Lesser known operas about pirates”
😀 a new(ish, from Pirate Day) search engine term and one of the finest (if not the) to date!
But aside from Belllini’s Il pirata, which is about a pirate and lesser known, I can’t think of anything much. There’s Verdi’s Il corsaro and… Pirates of Penzance. Is the eponymous flying Dutchman a pirate? Peter Grimes… not really. Neither are they lesser known.
Anyone know more on the subject?
