Following his return to the Viennese stage for Un ballo in maschera last month, Dmitri Hvorostovsky rejoins the Wiener Staatsoper to headline the company’s revival of Simon Boccanegra. In another one of his signature Verdian roles, the Siberian baritone stars as the composer’s conflicted doge May 24 through June 4 in Peter Stein’s production.
The performances reunite Dmitri with Barbara Frittoli, with whom he recorded the same work for Delos, alongside Francesco Meli as Gabriele Adorno and Ferruccio Furlanetto as Fiesco. Marco Armiliato conducts. June 4’s performance will be broadcast as part of the Staatsoper Live series. Passes for this are available for €14 with an option to watch on a time-delay to view in prime-time around the world.
