Simon Boccanegra : English Touring Opera
In this compelling drama set in the Italian port of Genoa, the title character is a former pirate who returns to the city to become its leader. Verdi’s depiction of the shimmering Mediterranean is wonderful. So too are the characters he creates, from Simon, the rough-hewn buccaneer (sung by Craig Smith), to his spiteful adversary, his own father-in-law (Fiesco, Keel Watson).
The large orchestra and chorus make taking this opera on the road a massive undertaking, so this is a rare chance to see this little-toured masterpiece outside of London.
Sung in Italian with English surtitles.
