  • Opera star Plácido Domingo and conductor James Conlon have worked together all over the world. Yet "Simon Boccanegra," which opened Saturday at Los Angeles Opera, marked the first time the two have teamed for an opera by Giuseppe Verdi.

  • You think Simon Boccanegra, you think Rigoletto, you think Renato in Un Ballo in Maschera. At a certain point, you think, Oh, this is Verdi. This is very serious. But you have to take it lightheartedly.
