« The singing this evening, from a cast of young International singers, was solid to stellar, a reminder that it is possible to enjoy an evening at the opera where genuine attention is paid not to the director’s concept but to the quality of musical performance.

January of 2017 sees the return of Verdi's Nabucco at the Deutsche Oper Berlin. This Keith Warner production of a Verdi favorite was successfully premiered by the Deutsche Oper in 2013, in the 200th anniversary year of Verdi's birth.
