Chorus of Opera North

Verdi Simon Boccanegra (original version 1857)

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, Germán Enrique Alcántara (Boccanegra), and we welcome back Eri Nakamura 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.
