Nabucco is an opera in four acts with music by the wonderful composer Giuseppe Verdi and book by Themistocles Solera, based on the story of Nebuchadnezzar and the Old Testament. It was the first of Verdi’s greatest works. He started composing it with the support of a patron until it was finally performed for the first time at the illustrious Teatro alla Scala of Milan on 1842.
Nabucco is set in Babylon and Jerusalem on the year 566 B.C. Nabucco names himself King and God of the Jews, and God punishes him by hitting him with a lighting for his impudence, causing his crown to fall off his head. It is at that moment that her bastard daughter Abigail takes revenge on his Father the king by proclaiming herself to be the absolute sovereign and condemning all Jews to death.
While listening to the chorus sing “Va Pensiero”, the Jews yearn for their lost land, which they get back when Abigail repents for her evil deeds and Nabucco is crowned as King of the Jews.
