Opera

Nabucco

Giuseppe Verdi

Dramma lirico in four parts Text by Temistocle Solera Performed in Italian with German and English supertitles

»Nabucco« is the young Giuseppe Verdi’s masterpiece. Based on the story of the Babylonian king Nabucco, his power-hungry daughter Abigaille and the subjugated Israelites, this opera, premiered in 1842, tells the story of freedom, faith and man’s hubris. »Nabucco« is one of Verdi’s most popular operas, not least due to »Va, pensiero, sull‘ali dorate«, more commonly known as »The Chorus of the Hebrew Slaves«. The staging is by director David Bösch, who made his debut at the Semperoper with »Die tote Stadt«.
