The happy rise and tragic fall of Simon Boccanegra is depicted in Elijah Moshinsky's powerful production of Guiseppe Verdi's opera, which comes to the Royal Opera House in the composer's bicentenary year. Having been reunited with his long-lost daughter, Boccanegra finds his position as Doge of Genoa threatened by political enemies. Blending moments of intimacy with the story drama of state politics, this is the acclaimed 1881 revised version of Verdi's compelling work.

 

About Royal Opera House

This impressive building in the heart of Covent Garden has been playing host to major stars of the classical music world since 1858. The third theatre to be located on this site, today's Royal Opera House is the result of a reconstruction in the 1990s (although the main auditorium is part of the original building).
