One of Verdi's least performed work, Il corsaro is based on a poem by Byron and was written between 1845 and 1848. The action takes place in the 16th century, a period notable for its skirmishes between Christian pirates and the Ottoman Empire, yet the action centres not on maritime battles and duels but on complex love affairs, all of which end badly for the protagonists.
