Simon Boccanegra
by Giuseppe Verdi

 

Verdi’s compelling portrayal of a man who is both a leader and an outsider, set against one of the most incisive depictions of politics ever put on the stage.

The legendary pair of James Levine and Plácido Domingo have defined Verdi’s art for more than four decades. They demonstrate their mastery with this remarkable character study of the wise Doge (leader) forced to confront his past.

Gabriele Adorno: Joseph Calleja

Jacopo Fiesco: Ferruccio Furlanetto
