Opus Concert Theatre proudly presents Giuseppe Verdi's masterpiece, Nabucco. Direct from the Bible (587 BC books of Jeremiah & Daniel), Nabucco is the story of a leader (King of Babylon - Nebuchadnezzar) who declares himself to be above the laws of God & Man. Nabucco reveals a love that crosses religious/racial boundaries, faces political lies, manipulations for power, enslavement of the Jews (minorities) and God's final judgement and justice. Semi-Staged Concert Version, with soloists, chorus, sung in English and Italian.
