Starring David Serero as Nabucco and soloists from the Metropolitan Opera, La Scala of Milan, The Bolshoi Opera from Moscow, and more.
Cementing his reputation as Europe’s foremost opera composer when it debuted, Verdi’s Nabucco thrills audiences with a sweeping story of love and betrayal. Short for Nabucodonosor—the Babylonian king also known as Nebuchadnezzar—the opera loosely adapts the Biblical tale of the Jewish kingdom’s conquest and the exile of its people. It finds Ismaele, a Jewish prince who has fallen in love with Fenena, Nabucco’s younger daughter, deciding between his beloved and his people. Ismaele can prevent the conquest single-handedly—Abigaille, Nabucco’s treacherous elder daughter, will call off the assault in exchange for his hand in marriage. The drama unfolds through powerful songs such as “Va, pensiero,” an ethereal ode to the Jewish people’s lost homeland that was later repurposed as an anthem for Italian freedom fighters in the 1860s.
