Nabucco

An opera of unapologetically epic proportions, in which rulers challenge their gods, love struggles against empire, and religious revelation goes hand in hand with divine retribution

An opera in four acts, sung in Italian. Music by Giuseppe Verdi; libretto by Temistocle Solera, based on biblical sources and the play Nabuchodonosor by Auguste Anicet-Bourgeois and Francis Cornu
