Verdi's Nabucco confronts the monumental themes of religious difference and nationhood that are so apposite today. Famous for its deeply moving choruses, Nabucco is a unique showcase for Opera Australia's magnificent chorus.
"Jonathan Summers...was in wonderful voice and gave a performance of rich intensity and dramatic power...The Hebrews' choral lament, Va Pensiero, perhaps Verdi's most famous piece was given thrilling voice by The Australian Opera Chorus." (The Australian)
