"Whoever follows the Zurich premiere in the Arte live transmission quickly learns to appreciate the focus on the intimate theater in Andreas Homoki's production." (Neue Zürcher Zeitung)
"One experiences facial expressions and gestures up close, recognizing only in the close-up how involved the protagonists are in the events, down to the blink of an eye." (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung)

The much-lauded premiere of Simon Boccanegra that could take place thanks to the Opernhaus Zürich’s unique performance model and was broadcast live on Arte on 6 December, 2020, is now post-produced and available for distribution. "Simon Boccanegra" marks the final new production in a series of great successes at the Opernhaus Zürich led by Fabio Luisi, General Music Director, and Intendant and director Andreas Homoki. The story of powerful and power-hungry men, and the women that fall victim to their familial dramas, closes out eight triumphant years of cultivating Verdi’s operatic repertoire.

A production of Accentus Music in co-production with NHK and SWR, in cooperation with Arte.

Directed for TV by Michael Beyer
