Nabucco at Union Avenue Opera

Nabucco, King of Babylon, seizes control of Jerusalem in his war with the Israelites. Meanwhile, his daughter Fenena and her half-sister Abigaille are both in love with Ismaele, the nephew of the King of Jerusalem. War rages on between Babylon and Jerusalem. Abigaille, thinking to stop the warring once and for all, tells Ismaele that she wills save his people if he vows to love her and not Fenena. When he denies her, Abigaille ruthlessly plans to take down the kingdom, claim Nabucco’s throne, and kill all the imprisoned Israelites. Not since Wagner’s Ring cycle has Union Avenue Opera presented a show with such epic splendor. Experience some of Verdi’s grandest orchestral and choral music ever written, including the soul-stirring “Va, pensiero” chorus.

Season subscriptions starting as low as $80! Senior discounts and student rush (w/ valid ID) available.
