The Royal Opera: Verdi's Simon Boccanegra

The Royal Opera: Verdi's Simon Boccanegra

Sunday, July 7, 2013 - 18:00

The Royal Opera returns to Symphony Hall to celebrate the 2013 bicentenary of Verdi’s birth in one of the highlights of the season. For this visit, music director Sir Antonio Pappano has chosen Verdi’s dark lyrical drama, Simon Boccanegra. Set in 14th-century Genoa, this great work is a brooding tragedy and a psychological study of power, treachery and the unbreakable bond between a father and his daughter.

Choir and Stalls first four rows not available. Concert performance sung in Italian with English surtitles. Please note surtitles may not be visible from every seat. Symphony Hall is a large hall and surtitles can be harder to read from the Grand Tier. To be sure of best visibility, book seats in centre stalls, centre circle or centre upper circle or check with box office before booking.

This concert has a running time of c.3 hours including one 25' interval.
