High Priest of the Israelites thePaata Burchuladze
and the Chorus and Orchestra of La Scala, Milan conducted by Riccardo Muti
Over the next weeks Verdi operas will be featured by BBC2 and Radio 3 in important, new productions which reveal Verdi's developing mastery as the supreme musical dramatist of the 19th century.
Nabucco was Verdi's first success. The stirring personal drama has echoes of Aida
(the soprano and the mezzo are both in love with the tenor), but Milanese operagoers in the 1840s were also moved by the patriotic fervour of 'Va, pensiero', the deeply touching chorus sung by the Israelites in their Babylonian captivity. Act I
The Temple in Jerusalem Act II
Scene 1: Palace at Babylon
Scene 2: A hall in the palace
Interval with Julian Budden , one of the world's leading
Verdi authorities, who also introduces the opera.
