Based on Lord Byron’s historical play of the same name, it tells the story of Francesco Foscari, the Doge of Venice. His 34-year rule ended tragically in 1457, when he saw his son Jacopo sentenced to exile for treason. He was later forced to abdicate and died soon thereafter. This opera was one of Verdi’s most important early successes.
