ALM Nabucco OperaAn operatic treat in Almuñécar on the 15th of November with a performance by the Opera Nacional de Moldavia of Nabucco (Verdi’s third opera). The performance begins at 20.00h.

Nabucco (short for Nabucodonosor, English Nebuchadnezzar) is a 4-act opera based on the Biblical story and the 1836 play.

It is Verdi’s third opera and the one which is considered to have permanently established his reputation as a composer. In fact, Verdi himself said, this is the opera “with which my artistic career really begins.”

Nabucco follows the plight of the Jews as they are attacked, conquered, and subsequently exiled from their homeland by the Babylonian King Nebuchadnezzar. The historical events are used as background for a romantic and political plot.

The Chorus of the Hebrew Slaves is one that is regularly given an encore when performed today
