Verdi’s Simon Boccanegra

18 April @ 19:00 - 22:00

From £16
Sir Mark Elder

A fascinating opportunity to hear Verdi’s Simon Boccanegra in its original 1857 version, in a major collaboration with Opera Rara and featuring the Chorus of Opera North.

The Hallé’s opera concert performances with Sir Mark are always eagerly anticipated and this season’s choice will be no exception.

Set in medieval Genoa, and with a plot built around love, political intrigue and revenge, at its core is a recurring theme in Verdi’s operas, the love between a father and daughter, which brings tragedy in its wake.

Heading an internationally stellar cast in this impelling drama is celebrated Argentinean baritone, Germán Enrique Alcántara (Boccanegra), and after making her Hallé debut in 2022, we welcome back Eri Nakamura singing Amelia (Boccanegra’s illegitimate daughter). Iván Ayón-Rivas performs Gabriele Adorno (Amelia’s lover and her father’s political foe) and William Thomas, making his second appearance this season, is Jacopo Fiesco, Amelia’s grandfather.

In partnership with Opera Rara.
