Nabucco A Seattle Opera Premiere says
Come experience the power of music on a whole new level at the Seattle Opera premiere of Verdi’s "Nabucco" this August. Viewers will be visually transported to ancient Babylon through magnificent costumes, awe-inspiring projections, and a new staging configuration that brings the music and performers closer to the audience than ever before. The opera tells the story of Nebuchadnezzar (or “Nabucco”), the mad king of Babylon who declares himself God. The powerful, fearsome Abigaille, daughter of one of his wives, feeds his ego in her own quest for power; meanwhile Nabucco’s own daughter, Fenena, resists her father and helps the enslaved Hebrews escape from bondage. In this powerful epic, Verdi uses an Old Testament story to give voice to a people yearning for freedom.

In Italian with English subtitles | McCaw Hall
