The cynically inclined have an easy target in "Il pirata," Bellini's first operatic success. Written in 1827, the rarely staged piece has a so-so plot involving 13th-century pirates, a love triangle, a fatal duel and a mad scene for the soprano. And the music is occasionally pedestrian, nowhere more so than the funeral procession in the last act, which sounds at first like the intro to "The 12th Street Rag" and then takes an almost cheery turn. But once you listen to this opera, really listen, it is impossible to miss the melodic beauty and theatrical imagination that propels it. Washington Concert Opera, which has a 15-season track record of rescuing neglected works, offered a welcome opportunity to do just that - listen.
