Long DescriptionPlácido Domingo's triumphant return to his baritone roots is captured in this stunning 2-DVD set of the Royal Opera House s 2010 production of Verdi's Simon Boccanegra. Conducted by Antonio Pappano and directed by Elijah Moshinsky, Domingo is joined in this performance by Mariana Polavskaya, Joseph Calleja, Ferruccio Furlanetto, Jonathan Summers and Lukas Jakobski.

The Simon Boccanegra release features exclusive bonus material, including a Back Stage with Plácido Domingo featurette and an interview with director Moshinsky. There is an additional audio function which features introductions to each of the opera s scenes in English with subtitles. In this production, Plácido Domingo extends his record of most roles held by any singer with this baritone debut.

Simon Boccanegra is Verdi's magnificent telling of a humble 14th century Genoan who rises to become Doge of the great city. The plot centers on the political intrigues between Boccanegra (Domingo) and his adversary, the aristocratic Jacopo Fiesco, and the discovery of his long-lost daughter, Amelia. This story though replete with an inevitable tragic conclusion is ultimately one of hope, as the two great men are able to rise above their power-driven animosities to ensure peace amongst their beloved Genoa's warring factions and by placing familial and civic love ahead of their own individual desires.
