Verdi’s Simon Boccanegra has recently had a renaissance and turns out to be surprisingly topical. For this new production staged by Zurich's general director Andreas Homoki, internationally acclaimed baritone Christian Gerhaher makes another debut in the title role, while Fabio Luisi conducts his last Verdi production as General Music Director in Zurich.

Intrigue, family tragedy, power struggles – that’s Verdi’s opera Simon Boccanegra in a nutshell. Verdi himself once said: “The piece is gloomy, because it has to be gloomy, but it’s gripping!” The opera has recently had a renaissance at all the world’s major opera houses and turns out to be surprisingly topical: a thriller in which men make history and women often fall victim to their machinations.
With:
Christian Gerhaher (Simon Boccanegra)
Jennifer Rowley (Maria Boccanegra)
Christof Fischesser (Jacopo Fiesco)
Otar Jorjikia (Gabriele Adorno)

Looking forward seeing you again soon live and healthy!
