Verdi’s Nabucco

November 13 - November 16


In 6th century BCE Babylon, King Nabucco’s enslavement of the Hebrews fuels a love triangle and a power struggle.Ishmael, the King of Jerusalem’s nephew, is in love with Nabucco’s daughter Fenena but he is also loved by her sister Abigail – who may or may not be Nabucco’s natural daughter.  As Nabucco slips into insanity, Abigail’s jealousy and rage are manifested in rebellion and the threat of a terrible revenge on the Hebrew people. The opera is a work full of wonderful dramatic choruses and beautiful arias, all readily accessible and married to a compelling story.

Guildford Opera’s traditional production is fully staged, sung in English with surtitles, and accompanied by a chamber orchestra.

There are 3 performances – Wed 13 Nov @7.30pm,£23,  Friday 15 November @7.30 pm, £25 and Saturday  16 November @6.30pm, £25. Tickets include a £1 booking fee and concessions are available for students and wheelchair users. There is no performance on Thursday Nov 14.

There will be a free talk at 6.30pm before the Friday performance and a bucket collection for  Fitzroy, a local charity which provides support for people with learning difficulties and autism, after each performance.
