4/9/2016 - Simon Boccanegra

Posted by Hayley Grigg on 04/08/2016


The 2015-16 Metropolitan Opera Radio Broadcast season continues with a live broadcast of Verdi’s Simon Boccanegra, starring Plácido Domingo in the title role of the Doge of Genoa, conducted by Met Music Director James Levine. The legendary duo has worked together many times over the past four decades, including Domingo’s Met role debut as Boccanegra in 2010 – his first appearance in baritone repertoire with the company. The performance also stars Armenian soprano Lianna Haroutounian, who makes her network broadcast debut as Boccanegra’s daughter Amelia, tenor Joseph Calleja as her lover Gabriele Adorno, and bass Ferruccio Furlanetto as Boccanegra’s enemy Fiesco. Simon Boccanegra will be heard live over the Toll Brothers-Metropolitan Opera International Radio Network at 11:30 a.m. on Saturday, April 9.
