Simon Boccanegra
Simon Boccanegra, a tale of intrigue, rebellion, betrayal, assassination and passion. Set against the class-driven battle for the control of 14th-century Genoa, it sympathetically portrays the embattled Doge of the city as the consequences of his past lead – through an estranged daughter, her competing suitors and a life-long enemy – to his own death.

Sung in Italian with English surtitles
