After he is elected Doge of Genoa, Simon Boccanegra learns quickly that political life is driven by backroom deals, conspiracy, vengeance, and murder. But when his own long-lost daughter re-enters his life, everything changes.

An eloquent call for magnanimity and reconciliation, Simon Boccanegra shows Verdi at his most humane: the characters are vivid, flawed; the music is haunting, full of grace and grandeur.
