Staged by Daniele Abbado

Nabucco was Verdi’s third work for the stage and proved his first great success when performed in 1842. It deals with the Hebrew’s attempts to break free from the yoke of their Babylonian oppressors and is nowadays numbered among Verdi’s most popular works, not least on account of its famous Chorus of Hebrew Slaves, which has one of the best-loved melodies in the whole history of opera.

“the two main roles - Nabucco and Abigaille - are taken by two outstanding artists who are convincing both musically and dramatically. Leo Nucci in particular makes the most of the title role, displaying the real authority that it needs...[the role of Abigaille] calls for a singer who gives the impression of being a force of nature and too many sopranos see this as an excuse for singing that is wild and approximate. That is not the case here.”
