This chapter analyzes Verdi's Il corsaro, performed in Trieste in October 1848. The libretto by Piave was taken from a short poem by Byron of the same title. The opera's reception failed to live up to expectations; according to some, Verdi himself acknowledged that the opera was lacking in inspiration.
