Simon Boccanegra - Bruson, M. Price, Siepi, Lamberti, Burchinal  1980
A beautiful Boccanegra performance from the San Francisco Opera. Bruson, smooth, elegant baritone is used to great advantage is the superbly crafted character opera. The character of Simon presents great opportunities for a great singing actor who is sensitive the music and the changes that occur in the character. Bruson fits the bill perfectly. Margaret Price sings a radiant Amelia, Siepi is his usual wonderful self, and Lamberti with more metal and vocal weight than is usual for him. All in all, a superb performance of a superb opera.
