About Verdi's Nabucco

Ancient Babylon comes to life in a classic Met staging of biblical proportions. Baritone George Gagnidze makes his Met role debut as the imperious king Nabucco, alongside soprano Liudmyla Monastyrska reprising her thrilling turn as his vengeful daughter Abigaille. Mezzo-soprano Maria Barakova and tenor SeokJong Baek, in his company debut, are Fenena and Ismaele, whose love transcends politics, and bass Dmitry Belosselskiy repeats his celebrated portrayal of the high priest Zaccaria. Daniele Callegari conducts Verdi’s exhilarating early masterpiece, which features the ultimate showcase for the great Met Chorus, the moving “Va, pensiero.”

World premiere: Teatro alla Scala, Milan, 1842. The success of Verdi’s third opera, a stirring drama about the fall of ancient Jerusalem at the hands of Nebuchadnezzar (Nabucco), catapulted the 28-year-old composer to international fame. The music and Verdi himself were subsumed into a surge of patriotic fervor culminating in the foundation of the modern nation of Italy. Specifically, the Chorus of the Hebrew Slaves (“Va, pensiero”), in which the Israelites express their longing for their homeland, came to stand for the country’s aspirations for unity and that exciting era in Italian history, the Risorgimento, or “Resurgence.”

"what the met does best"

See it if an opera from the canon beautifully performed and staged, appeals.

Don’t see it if that's not your thing.

Masterful, Great singing, Great staging, Absorbing

See it if you like opera in its more classic expression; the "bel canto" and a great, simple yet visually impactful and majestic scenography.

Don’t see it if you don't like opera in general; you don't like classic opera and want a more modern touch to it

Great staging, Great singing, Resonant, Thought-provoking, Absorbing

See it if Verdi's breakout opera is a choral masterpiece about the ancient Hebrews in Babylonian exile Staged on Napier's awesome sets its a knockout

Don’t see it if This production is carried by its male voices: Nabacco's Gagnidze & Zaccaria's Belosselskiy with Monastyrska's Abigaille often too strident
