Simon Boccanegra

- Not available -

The ambiguities of Verdi’s theatre are particularly clear in his baritone roles, among which is that of Boccanegra, corsair turned doge of Genoa and the troubled observer of the conflicts that tore apart 14th century landowners and peasants.
...
A village somewhere in the Italian countryside, a wayside inn on a road crossed by the occasional dog. Nothing more.
