Nabucco"With this opera, it can truly be said that my artistic career began" were the words of Giuseppe Verdi following the instant success of Nabucco. Having fallen into despair after the failure of his second opera, Verdi vowed never to compose another piece. However, he was convinced by Bartolomeo Merelli, manager of La Scala Milan, to work on Nabucco and its resounding success led to his fame. Offering a romantic and political plot, Nabucco is set to the background of the plight of the Jews as they are assaulted and exiled by the Babylonian King. This revival, directed by Daniele Abbado, is based in the second half of the 20th century and uses large-scale video projections to accompany the action on stage. Epic scores such as the Hebrew Slaves' song of exile 'Va pensiero' the words of which are rumoured to be what inspired Verdi to write music again add to the powerful drama of the piece.
