He was elected, probably by acclamation, immediately after the assassination of his predecessor, Pietro Tradonico. By the end of the year, the assassins were captured, convicted, and executed, probably beheaded. Orso continued like Tradonico to fight the pirates, Slavic or Saracen, which inhabited the Adriatic. He was aided by newly constructed larger ships.
