Nabucco 2013: Passion and Conquest in the Arena
Nabucco is making an immense comeback to the Avenches Arena! This monumental lyrical opera, Verdi’s masterpiece in its 2013 version, promises to excite and surprise you with its powerful music. See you once again next July for a fabulous evening of opera.
An ever present story
Between Jerusalem and Babylon, between the Royal Palace and the Hanging Gardens, Verdi’s opera takes place during the reign of the terrible Nebuchadnezzar II. Oppressed people, conquest and war, jealousy and a love triangle, power and an illegitimate daughter, mysteries and idols: All the ingredients of a compelling narrative are contained in this ageless libretto of Nabucco.
Avenches Opera beautifully celebrates Giuseppe Verdi’s bicentennial birthday with this 2013 edition. It is always a pleasure to once again welcome you to the opera.
