A tale of public feuds and private griefs, set against a backdrop of civil war, Simon Boccanegra is revered as one of Verdi's most sublime, mature masterpieces. Featuring a major role for the ENO Chorus, the opera is conducted by ENO's Olivier Award-winning Music Director, Edward Gardner. Award-winning young Russian director/designer Dmitri Tcherniakov makes his ENO debut with a production that launches a new partnership between ENO and the Bayerische Staatsoper, Munich. Leading Verdi baritone Bruno Caproni (ENO's magisterial Nabucco) sings the title-role of the privateer-turned-politician, with Brindley Sherratt as Fiesco, the implacable foe who discovers, too late, the bonds of love that bind them.

The Coliseum Theatre (also known as the London Coliseum) is on St. Martin's Lane, in the City of Westminster. It is one of London's largest and best equipped theatres and opened in 1904, designed by theatrical architect Frank Matcham (designer of the London Palladium), for impresario Oswald Stoll. Their ambition was to build the largest and finest 'People's palace of entertainment' of its age.
