The temperament-filled role of Abigaille in Nabucco is notorious for its extreme vocal demands, but the young Callas – just 26 when she performed the role at Naples’ Teatro San Carlo – conquers it confidently and commandingly.

Her astonishing capacities for both barnstorming power and intricate delicacy are called into play in this, her earliest live recording of a complete opera. These performances at one of Italy’s most celebrated opera houses represent the only occasion Callas sang the role of Abigaille on stage.

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.
