Verdi Simon Boccanegra (original version 1857)

The Hallé’s opera concert performances with Sir Mark are always eagerly anticipated and this season’s choice will be no exception: a fascinating opportunity to hear Verdi’s Simon Boccanegra in its original 1857 version, in a major collaboration with Opera Rara and featuring the Chorus of Opera North.

Set in medieval Genoa, and with a plot built around love, political intrigue and revenge, at its core is a recurring theme in Verdi’s operas, the love between a father and daughter, which brings tragedy in its wake. Heading an internationally stellar cast in this impelling drama is celebrated Italian baritone, Nicola Alaimo (Boccanegra), and recent Franco Abbiati Prize winner Eleonora Buratto singing Amelia (Boccanegra’s illegitimate daughter). Iván Ayón-Rivas performs Gabriele Adorno (Amelia’s lover and her father’s political foe) and William Thomas, making his second appearance this season, is Jacopo Fiesco, Amelia’s grandfather.

In partnership with Opera Rara.
