The Old Testament story of the capture of the Jewish people by King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon was the inspiration for Giuseppe Verdi´s first really successful opera. Probably no one imagined at the premiere that Solera’s originally rejected libretto would be transformed into an iconic work in Verdi´s hands, but the immediacy, passion and temperament of the music captivated the audience, and rightly so. And then there is also the story of a nation longing for a homeland and for freedom, a story which still hasn’t lost its power and relevance, and whose personification is the famous choral piece “Va, pensiero, sull’ali dorate” (Go, thoughts, on golden wings…). Just as with other works by Verdi, Nabucco also hides another more intimate layer about love and family relationships, and the composer portrayed these with the feeling of a true playwright. It is no wonder that this opera, full of magnificent choral sections and captivating singing parts, has been one of the most popular works in our repertoire for thirty-five years.
