Led by globally renowned Music Director Sir Mark Elder in one of his last performances, the Hallé delivers a flawless rendition of Verdi’s Simon Boccanegra with award-winning vocalists and a decorated cast of international talent at The Bridgewater Hall on Thursday 18 April.

Rendered masterfully in its original 1857 form and performed in partnership with Opera Rara and the Chorus of Opera North, Simon Boccanegra offers a propulsive, exhilarating drama packed with gripping political intrigue, ill-fated love and hollow-eyed revenge.

Verdi’s three-act masterpiece revisits his perennial core theme of the bond between a father and daughter with tragic consequences, brought to vivid life by celebrated Argentinian baritone, Germàn Enqirue Alcàntara (Boccanegra), Eri Nakamura singing Amelia (Boccanegra’s illegitimate daughter), Iván Ayón-Rivas as Gabriele Adorno (Amelia’s lover and her father’s political foe) and William Thomas as Jacopo Fiesco, Amelia’s grandfather.
