Performing with Valery Gergiev in Baden-Baden
On July 9, Plácido Domingo returns to the title role of Simon Boccanegra, bringing Andrea de Rosa’s production from the Mariinsky Theater of St. Petersburg to Festspielhaus Baden-Baden. The staging is a co-production with the opera houses of La Fenice, Venice and Genoa.
Valery Gergiev leads the performance, which also features Tatiana Serjan (Amelia/Maria) and Ferrucio Furlanetto (Jacopo Fiesco).
In 2009, the role of Simon Boccanegra marked Domingo’s first foray into baritone repertoire, and the role has quickly become one of Domingo’s new favorites.
