About

Simon Boccanegra does not often get the same kind of publicity as many of Verdi's other popular operas, perhaps because of the complexity of its libretto. Premiered in 1857 at Venice's Teatro La Fenice, it underwent many revisions thereafter—and its revised version, first performed in 1881 at Milan's La Scala, met with greater success! This modern production from La Scala amply demonstrates the many qualities of Verdi's score, especially owing to its stellar cast headed by Plácido Domingo in the title role as the first Doge of Genoa, who masterfully navigates his duets with Paolo (Massimo Cavalletti), Fiesco (Ferruccio Furlanetto), and Amelia (Anja Harteros).
