Plácido Domingo, one of the most celebrated talents of our time, headlines this unmissable new production of NABUCCO. Verdi’s genre-defining masterwork features some of the greatest choral music ever written, offering melody, power, and raw drama on an epic scale. The plot is based on the biblical story of King Nebuchadnezzar (Nabucco), and focuses on his imprisonment of the Hebrews, his struggle against his unscrupulous daughter, his divine punishment, and final salvation. Verdi’s themes of nationhood, faith, love, and redemption call upon the full might of the Royal Opera House’s orchestra and stellar lead talent.
