About

The successful 2018 production of Nabucco is being revived at the Herodion in July 2023 for four performances with music conducted by Paolo Carignani and directed by Leo Muscato.


Nabucco is considered one of Giuseppe Verdi's greatest operas. This work established the composer as the most important Italian composer of the 19th century, while simultaneously becoming a symbol of the struggle for Italian unification. Although Verdi was not the first composer to set strongly political texts to music, Italy's leading composer nonetheless made the difference with his musical genius; it is this that gives his operas a distinctly political dimension and the power to rouse crowds .

The case concerns the captivity of the Jews by the Babylonian king Nebuchadnezzar. When, in his arrogance, he asks everyone to worship him as a god, he is struck by lightning. When he recognizes Jehovah as the only true god, he regains his senses, frees the Jews and consents to the relationship of his real daughter, Fenena, with Ishmael, nephew of the king of Jerusalem. Abigail, who usurped the power of Nabucco, also turns to Jehovah in the end.
