Program notes

Verdi’s first unqualified hit gets the royal treatment in Arnaud Bernard’s 2017 production at Verona’s world-famous Roman amphitheater, the Arena di Verona! Starring George Gagnidze in the title role, Rubens Pelizzari as Ismaele, Susanna Branchini as Abigaille, and Nino Surguladze as Fenena, Bernard’s Nabucco transposes the dramatic tale of the Hebrew people fighting the Babylonian invaders of Jerusalem to mid-19th century Milan. There, the Milanese defend themselves against the Austrian aggressors, with the legendary La Scala opera house standing in for the cherished Temple of the Hebrew people. An imaginative retelling of one of Verdi's most cherished operatic masterpieces!
