Simon Boccanegra | interview with Ludovic Tézier | Opera Paris

Ludovic Tézier interprets the title role of Simon Boccanegra, sometimes gentle, sometimes harsh, bringing his immense experience as a baritone to one of Verdi’s finest and most moving scores. The truth of Verdian feeling shines out from Simon Boccanegra. His love of coastal landscapes, his faith in social justice and his loss of wife and child are all biographical elements towards which this opera converges.
