Content
„Va, pensiero“: A plea for freedom
Dramma lirico in four parts
Libretto by Temistocle Solera
In Italian with German surtitles
approx. 3 hours, one interval
For all from 14 upwards
Two peoples find themselves in the barbaric grip of war after Nabucco and his troops have attacked Jerusalem. The Babylonian king and Zaccaria, the high priest of the Hebrews, do not budge an inch from their opposing viewpoints in this profound conflict, while the daily reality of war continues to bring new suffering to both peoples. The seemingly hopeless conflict does not even stop at their own families: Zaccaria holds Nabucco's favourite daughter Fenena hostage, while she has long converted to the Jewish faith out of love for Ismaele, Zaccaria's nephew. Nabucco's other daughter, Abigaille, envies her sister's happiness and her father's throne and makes disastrous plans...

Giuseppe Verdi sets the stage for the chorus in his narration of the Old Testament events. The collective sets the tone with unrivalled dramatic force - for hope, for solidarity and for humanity.
