Nabucco was Verdi’s third work for the stage and proved his first great success when performed in 1842. It deals with the Hebrews’ attempts to break free from the yoke of their Babylonian oppressors and is nowadays numbered among Verdi’s most popular works, not least on account of its famous “Chorus of Hebrew Slaves,” which has one of the best-loved melodies in the whole history of opera.

The Tutto Verdi project marks the Verdi bicentenary and sets standards by which all similar projects will be judged. It includes all 26 operas by the greatest Italian stage composer, together with his immortal Requiem, all of them in definitive performances.

“This is how Verdi should be played.” (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung)

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.
