A Synopsis of Verdi's Opera, Nabucco

By September 23, 2012

Follow me on:

Verdi's Nabucodonosor (aka. Nabucco) was his third opera.  It premiered less than two and a half years after his first in the famous La Scala theater, and with it, garnered the composer great fame.  It's most famous for its Hebrew Slaves Chorus in the third act (watch it here on YouTube).  The chorus recounts the story of the exiled Israelites after the destruction of the first temple.  The chorus is so well liked that it is often performed once more as an encore.   The opera is regularly performed and included in many opera companies' repertoires, despite its rather difficult soprano arias.  Learn the synopsis of Verdi's Nabucco.
