by Giuseppe Verdi
Verdi’s timeless tale of political and family intrigue.
Simon Boccanegra is 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 title character, with his complex relationships with rivals and his long-lost daughter, is one of the summits of the baritone repertoire. A rewarding example of Verdi’s genius at its most humane and insightful.
