Nabucco was Verdi’s third work for the stage and was his first great success when performed in 1842. It has become one of Verdi’s most popular works, not least on account of “Va pensiero” the famous chorus of Hebrew slaves, which has one of the best-loved melodies in the history of opera.

This release, part of the Tutto Verdi project celebrating Verdi’s 200th birthday, features a definitive performance from the Teatro Regio de Parma.
 

Verdi’s biblical drama about King Nebuchadnezzar and the exiled Israelites premiered in Milan’s Teatro alla Scala in 1842. It was one of the composer’s earliest triumphs, and is considered by many to be the true beginning of his artistic career. The work is renowned for its rousing choruses, especially “Va, pensiero” (“Chorus of the Hebrew Slaves”), which is now regarded as a kind of unofficial national anthem by many Italians who find in it moving echoes of their own historic quest for a nation-state.
