History

Verdi's Nabucco

Verdi's NabuccoVerdi’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.
