Directed by Ellen Kent featuring the Celebrated Chisinau National Opera and National Philharmonic with International Guest soloists
Ellen Kent returns with a new production of the very first opera she ever produced.
Verdi’s haunting and melodic chorus of the Hebrew slaves follows the plight of the Hebrews as they are forced from their homeland into exile by the Babylonian King Nabucco.
This powerful tale is laced with revenge, destruction and jealousy.
A spectacular traditionally staged production featuring magnificent sets and costumes with amazing lighting and stage effects. Starring international guest soloists and the celebrated Chisinau National Opera Chorus, Nabucco promises to be an evening to remember.
Sung in Italian with English surtitles.

This was my first outing to the opera and I'm a bit of a purist so I was a bit nervous about what I was going to see. However, it was a wonderful production. The choral work was fantastic and was enchanted by it. My only real grip is that being in the Dress Circle at the front row, the barrier was a constant hindrance to my viewing (I'm 5ft 4) and I had to sit forward in my seat and push myself up the whole time which was really uncomfortable and my back ached throughout. Otherwise, it was great first experience.
