Buenos Aires Lirica recently performed the rarely staged Belisario, photographs of which can be found below. A review of the opera in Spanish can be found here and in English here.

Not least of the problems in staging it was the lack of a score, which was remedied by their chorusmaster, Juan Casasbellas, reconstructing it from a reproduction of the manuscript score, see here for details. A video of the production can be found here.
