Before starting to work on Nabucodonosor, which would later become his iconic Nabucco, Giuseppe Verdi was on the verge of abandoning music, discouraged as he was by the flop of his second opera. 

He then received a libretto by Temistocle Solera almost by chance, as it was destined to another composer. Verdi was very reluctant to put himself to work, but later he referred that one night he threw the manuscript on the table –“The booklet opened: unwillingly, my eyes were drawn to the page that was before them and on these verses: Va, pensiero, sullali dorate.” 

Nabucodonosor was a triumph, the public of La Scala repaid him with an unprecedented success, hailing all the numbers of the opera with warm ovations and paying a special tribute to the chorus “Va, pensiero, sullali dorate,” which in Italy has since become a sort of second national anthem. 

This production was filmed at the 2019 Festival Verdi in Parma. It is a very powerful and engaging creative project by 2018 Abbiati prize winner duo Ricci/Forte. The most striking feature of this staging is that the action takes place in 2046 on a military ship, which reminds us of an Ark. This performance portrays a dystopic society where we can find many references to real contemporary events.

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.
