Nelly will return to Queen Elisabeth Hall together with Chelsea Opera Group for a performance of Donizetti's Belisario, next year on February 13. This will mark her return to bel canto with COG after her 2007 appearance in Beatrice di Tenda.
Throughout her career, Nelly has dedicated herself to the revival of less performed operas and she has a long collaboration history with Opera Rara with who she recorded numerous bel canto masterpieces. In that tradition, she chose Donizetti's Caterina Coronaro as her annivesary performance this year of the VARA a Matinee Concerts at the Amsterdam Concertgebouw.
An opera in 3 acts, Belisario was premiered to great acclaim on February 4, 1836 at Teatro La Fenice, Venice and although it was very popular through out the 19th century, modern productions are very rare.
