I Due Foscari was Italian composer, Giuseppe Verdi’s sixth opera, and one of his most dramatic. The tale, taken from Lord Byron's play of the same title, relates how the dying Doge of Venice is faced with the choice between his political duties and his love for his son, who is accused of murder. The first performance of this opera in the Liceu took place on May 12th 1847, and the most recent production was on in November 1977, so the return is much anticipated, and even more so with Plácido Domingo starring the lead role in both performances.
