Prologue
Genoa, 14th century. Paolo and Pietro, leaders of the plebeians, are conspiring to overthrow the aristocracy. They name the popular former pirate Simon Boccanegra as their candidate for the office of doge, the chief magistrate of the republic. Boccanegra accepts, hoping that his new position will enable him to marry Maria, the daughter of the patrician Fiesco, who keeps her prisoner because she bore Boccanegra an illegitimate child. Fiesco appears alone, mourning Maria’s sudden death. Unaware she has died, Boccanegra tries to make peace with the patrician, but Fiesco demands that he first be given his granddaughter. Boccanegra explains that the little girl has mysteriously disappeared. The two men part and Boccanegra enters the Fiesco palace in search of Maria. Just as he discovers her body, the crowd proclaims him doge.

Boccanegra urges the city council to preserve peace with Venice. Gabriele runs in, chased by a mob: he has killed a man who was attempting to abduct Amelia. He accuses Boccanegra of plotting the abduction and tries to stab him. Amelia intervenes. She describes her abduction and escape, but refuses to reveal who was responsible. A new argument erupts and Boccanegra again urges peace. He curses Amelia’s kidnappers and commands Paolo, whom he suspects to be the culprit, to repeat his words. The terrified Paolo is forced to obey, even though he is cursing himself.

序幕 
十四世紀,熱那亞。庶民保羅和彼得羅正密謀推翻貴族政權。他們推舉受人歡迎的前海盜西蒙.波卡涅拉為熱那亞總督。波卡涅拉接受眾人提名,希望藉著新的地位和權力讓他娶下因誕下波卡涅拉的私生女,而正被父親貴族菲耶斯科囚禁的女兒瑪莉亞。菲耶斯科孤單現身,正在哀悼突然身亡的女兒。不知道瑪莉亞已死的波卡涅拉走上前,想與他和好,但被菲耶斯科要求他先交出自己的孫女。波卡涅拉解釋她離奇失蹤了。波卡涅拉走到菲耶斯科城堡,想要尋找瑪莉亞,卻發現她冰冷的屍體時。就在此時,外面的群眾宣布他當選熱那亞總督。

波卡涅拉促請議會贊成熱那亞與威尼斯談和。加布里埃殺了企圖拐走阿蜜莉亞的綁架犯,並跟群眾跑進大廳。他指控波卡涅拉是幕後黑手,並企圖將他刺死,卻被阿蜜莉亞阻止。她講述自己被拐走及逃走的經過,但拒絕透露綁架犯的身分。波卡涅拉勸諭眾人冷靜,暗中懷疑保羅就是犯人。波卡涅拉要求保羅跟他一同詛咒犯人。驚恐的保羅按著做,即使明知他在詛咒自己。

Act I 
Twenty-five years have passed. Boccanegra has exiled many of his political opponents and Fiesco lives outside Genoa under the assumed name of Andrea Grimaldi. He is the guardian of a certain Amelia Grimaldi. Abandoned as an orphan, she has been brought up in place of the real Grimaldi daughter, who died at a young age, in order to provide the family with an heiress. Amelia is in reality Maria Boccanegra, the doge’s daughter and Fiesco’s granddaughter, but neither man knows her true identity. Amelia’s lover is the patrician Gabriele Adorno. Together with Fiesco, whom he knows only under his assumed name, Gabriele has been plotting against Boccanegra.

In the garden of the Grimaldi palace, Amelia waits for Gabriele. She warns him against the dangers of his political activities and tells him that the doge wants her to marry his courtier Paolo. Gabriele hopes to marry Amelia himself and is undeterred by her revelation that she is not a Grimaldi but an orphan of unknown background. He leaves, determined to overthrow the doge. Boccanegra arrives to tell Amelia he has pardoned her presumed brothers, the Grimaldi. Impressed by his generosity, she admits her love for Gabriele and talks about her lonely past. From the matching portraits they have of Amelia’s mother, Boccanegra realizes that Amelia is his long-lost daughter. They embrace. The girl leaves and Boccanegra tells Paolo to abandon any hope of marrying her. Paolo plots with Pietro to kidnap Amelia. 

第一幕
二十五年過去,期間波卡涅拉流放了不少政敵。菲耶斯科化名為安德烈‧格里馬迪,現居住在熱那亞外郊,並養育著阿蜜莉亞‧格里馬迪。她本為流浪孤兒,被格里馬迪收養,以代替早年去世的女兒成為家族繼承者。事實上,阿蜜莉亞的真正身分正是波卡涅拉的女兒及菲耶斯科的孫女──瑪莉亞.波卡涅拉,但二人對此毫不知情。阿蜜莉亞正跟貴族加布里埃利.阿多爾諾相愛。聯同菲耶斯科,加布里埃利密謀推翻波卡涅拉。

在格里馬迪城堡的後花園中,阿蜜莉亞正在等待加布里埃利。他的政治活動越漸危險,阿蜜莉亞警告他萬事小心,並透露波卡涅拉想將她嫁給自己的侍從保羅。加布里埃利想要迎娶阿蜜莉亞,毫不介意她的孤兒出身,並誓要把波卡涅拉拉下台。

波卡涅拉現身,告知阿蜜莉亞他赦免了她的兄弟的罪行。被波卡涅拉的寬容感動,她坦承自己愛上了加布里埃利,並訴說年幼時的孤獨日子。二人說著,拿出各自戴著的吊墜,裡面都裝著阿蜜莉亞母親的畫像。波卡涅拉驚覺阿蜜莉亞就是他失散多年的女兒,二人激動相擁。為了女兒幸福,波卡涅拉要保羅放棄迎娶阿蜜莉亞。心有不忿的保羅跟彼得羅密謀綁架阿蜜莉亞。

Act II
Paolo reflects on the curse and pours poison into Boccanegra’s drinking water. Fiesco and Gabriele are led in, and Paolo tries to convince the old man to assassinate the doge, but in spite of his hatred for Boccanegra, Fiesco refuses to be involved in the plot. When Paolo makes insinuations about Boccanegra’s relationship with Amelia, Gabriele, left alone, breaks into a fit of jealousy. Amelia enters, but before she can explain, Boccanegra appears. Gabriele hides while Amelia asks her father to pardon her lover. Boccanegra agrees. Alone, he drinks the poisoned water and falls asleep. Gabriele, who has heard nothing of the preceding conversation, returns and is about to stab Boccanegra when Amelia rushes in. The doge reveals that he is Amelia’s father and forgives the repentant Gabriele. As a rebellious mob is heard from outside, Gabriele vows to fight at Boccanegra’s side.

第二幕
保羅在波卡涅拉的水裡下毒。菲耶斯科和加布里埃利被帶進來。保羅企圖說服菲耶斯科暗殺波卡涅拉,但即時懷恨在心,菲耶斯科拒絕被捲入這個陰謀。保羅隨即暗示波卡涅拉與阿蜜莉亞關係曖昧,加布里埃利馬上妬火中燒。此時,阿蜜莉亞與波卡涅拉現身,加布里埃利匿藏一角。阿蜜莉亞懇求父親赦免加布里埃利的罪行,並獲得准許。獨自一人的波卡涅拉喝下有毒的水後睡著了。對父女的對話毫不知情的加布里埃利上前刺殺波卡涅拉,幸好被阿蜜莉亞阻止。波卡涅拉透露自己其實是阿蜜莉亞的父親,並原諒感到懊悔的加布里埃利。外面傳來群眾叛亂的聲音,加布里埃利發誓將保衛波卡涅拉。

ACT III
Genoa is celebrating Boccanegra’s victory over the rebels. Paolo, who is being led to his execution, encounters Fiesco and confesses to him that it was he who poisoned the doge and tried to kidnap Amelia. Boccanegra enters, mortally ill, thinking about his beloved Genoese sea. Fiesco challenges him and then reveals his true identity. When Boccanegra tells him that Amelia is his granddaughter, Fiesco breaks into tears and the two men are reconciled. Amelia and Gabriele enter. The dying Boccanegra blesses the young couple and names Gabriele as his successor.

第三幕
熱那亞正在慶祝波卡涅拉的勝利。被帶去處刑的保羅遇上菲耶斯科,並承認是自己對波卡涅拉下藥及綁架阿蜜莉亞。病重波卡涅拉懷念著年輕時的海上生活。菲耶斯科揭露自己身分,公然挑戰他的權威。波卡涅拉告訴他阿蜜莉亞其實是他的孫女,菲耶斯科激動而泣,兩人以此和好。命不久矣的波卡涅拉祝福阿蜜莉亞與加布里埃利的婚事,並命後者為他的繼承人。
