The treachery of 15th Century Venice comes to the stage of the Teatro Alla Scala in a filmed performance of Guiseppe Verdi's grim three-act tragedy that takes its cue from a drama originally penned by Lord Byron. Directed by Gianandrea Gavazzeni and starring Renato Bruson in the role of Venetian Doge Francesco Foscari, this 1988 production offers opera fans the rare opportunity of experiencing a landmark performance captured live on the stage of one of the world's premiere opera houses.
