Simon Boccanegra is an opera in three acts with a prologue by Giuseppe Verdi. The libretto of the first version was written by Francesco Maria Piave, after the play Simón Bocanegra by Antonio Garciá Gutiérrez. The opera was originally commissioned by the Teatro la Fenice in Venice, but was rejected at the premier. Due to the great failure of the opera, the opera got, together with Arrigo Boito, reworked and re-performed on the 24th of March in 1881 in Milan. The opera is regarded as Verdi's first step towards the musical drama. Arias are shortened and the recitative becomes the main feature of the musical theme.
