Set in 14th century Genoa, this production captures perfectly the shadowy world of scheming power politics, Set against a shimmering backdrop of the omnipresent sea. Two of Verdi’s recurring themes - the beauty of family love and the impossibility of even the best intentioned political power are united in Simon Boccanegra, an opera whose tenderness and insight can only leave the listener uplifted.
