Lewis Gaston and Peter Melville, Guildford Opera Company

Nabucco (Nebuchadnezzar) was Giuseppe Verdi’s third opera and his first triumphant success. It includes ‘Va pensiero’, the chorus of the Hebrew slaves as they lament their exile in Babylon, the most popular of all Verdi’s choruses. The première was at La Scala, Milan in 1842.

Join Guildford Opera Company’s Music Director Lewis Gaston and Stage Director Peter Melville, as they explore, with musical illustrations, Verdi’s fascinating early masterpiece and its place in history.
