The Teatro Regio di Parma is set to stream its concert performance of Verdi’s “Simon Boccanegra” on Oct. 9, 2021.

The performance, which is part of the annual Festival Verdi, will be free of charge on Opera Streaming’s Youtube Page. The cast will include Igor Golovatenko in the title role, Angela Meade as Amelia Grimaldi, Michele Pertusi as Fiesco, Segio Vitale as Paolo, and Riccardo Della Sciucca as Gabriele Adorno.

Michele Mariotti is set to conduct the Orchestra and Chorus of the Teatro Comunale di Bologna.

This is the second year in a row that the Festival Verdi teams up with Opera Streaming. Last season the company showcased a concert performance of “Ernani” featuring Eleonora Buratto and Vladimir Stoyanov.

“Simon Boccanegra” is set to open on Oct. 9 and will also be performed on Oct. 16, 2021. The festival is also set to present a new production of “Un Ballo in Maschera” and the Verdi Requiem.
