Nabucco

Introduction at 6.50 pm

Jerusalem has been occupied, the Jewish temple destroyed, the Hebrew nation abducted to enemy Babylon. In its Babylonian exile, the Jewish people’s struggle for land, faith and freedom continues. Power-hungry, the Babylonian king Nabucco seeks to rule like god himself. Struck with madness, his love for his own daughter is his salvation: a humble call to the god of the Hebrews breaks forth from Nabucco’s lips. Thoughts reach heaven on golden wings. On earth, the search for social belonging and religious identity continues. It is an eternal search, one that has led to violence and oppression even today: millennia after the failed attempt to build a tower of Babel, in the age of an international world language and human rights treaties.
