Simon Boccanegra in Salzburg
27 Jul 2019
From August 15 – 29, René Pape sings Fiesco in Simon Boccanegra at the Salzburger Festspiele. This opera is Verdi’s most personal, and certainly his darkest work, in which family and political conflicts clash inexorably.
Mr. Pape will share the stage with a formidable cast including Luca Salsi in the title role, Marina Rebeka as Amelia Grimaldi and Charles Castronovo as Gabriele Adorno, with conductor Valery Gergiev leading at the pit.
