Description
 
14th-century Genoa is the setting for one of Giuseppe Verdi's grandest works, Simon Boccanegra, and Peter Hall's elegant production, with its palpable sense of atmosphere evoked by John Gunter's sets and costumes, 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 impossibilty of even the best-intentioned political power - are united in Simon Boccanegra, an opera whose tenderness and insight can only leave the listener uplifted. Boccanegra's great cry for peace and reconciliation echoes round the world today as powerfully as it did in the divided Italy of his own lifetime. A Glyndebourne Festival Opera production, starring Peter Sidhom, Daniel Borowski, Giancarlo Pasquetto, and Alastair Miles. London Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Mark Elder.
