CORONAVIRUS: currently, all theatres and related venues are closed. Shows are either being cancelled, postponed or rescheduled and we are trying to keep up with all the changes. There are currently few changes after May 2020 and many shows that were due for April have been pushed back towards the end of Autumn. Pantomimes are looking like a safe bet at the moment ;-)

Simon Boccanegra

Simon BoccanegraT01606431516
Simon Boccanegra, a corsair, and his lover Maria have a child, but Maria dies in childbirth and her father (Fiesco) refuses to acknowledge Boccanegra as his son-in-law. Boccanegra is later elected Doge of Genoa and, as the years pass and his power grows he is plotted against by Fiesco and Adorno (a young nobleman in love with Fiesco's ward). Boccanegro recognises Fiesco's ward as his lost daughter but is poisoned - the parties are reconciled as Boccanegra dies and declares Adorno his successor.
