Giuseppe Verdi (1813–1901) is the preeminent Italian opera composer of the 19th century. His works remain immensely popular today, and are at the core of the opera repertoire.

Simon Boccanegra is based on a play of the same name by the Spanish dramatist Antonio García Gutiérrez (1813–1884).

The libretto for the original version of the opera was by Francesco Maria Piave (1810–1876), Verdi’s principal librettist during his extremely successful and productive middle period (1849-1859). While the 1857 premiere of Simon Boccanegra was not a success, 20 years later Verdi revised the score and libretto with writer Arrigo Boito (1842–1918), who later wrote the librettos for Otello and Falstaff.
