Verdi’s Nabucco was a milestone in the composer’s life as he achieved his first genuinely sweeping success with this opera. He was enchanted by the powerful Biblical story of the libretto, and this magic will stay with us foreverthrough the depths and passion of music. The chorus “Va, pensiero...” became an anthem of liberty immediately after the premiere in 1842. In his spectacular direction, Gergely Kesselyák presents the shifts in the balance of powers and religions, the story of the demolition of the First Temple and the Babylonian captivity embedded in the eternal cycles of changing eras in world history.
