ORGANISER: AGENCJA ARTYSTYCZNA PRO MUSICA
In Poland, the production of Nabucco by Agencja Artystyczna Pro Musica will be given for the second time. Since its Stuttgart premiere on 31.10.1994, this production has been shown with great success on more than 170 stages, including Tonhalle in Zurich, International Congress Center in Berlin, Theatre d'Esche in Luxembourg, Theatre de Beaulieu in Lausanne and Alte Oper in Frankfurt.
Nabucco is one of the first Verdi’s operas, which on the very day of its premiere at La Scala on 9 March 1842 brought the composer enormous success and fame. This masterpiece is closely tied with the history of Italy, where the northern provinces in that period were under Austrian rule. Verdi – a fervent patriot -- supported the independence cause with all his heart.
The main theme of the libretto is the striving of the Jewish nation for freedom from the Babylonian bondage. The analogy is clearly legible. The great music of Verdi inspired stormy patriotic demonstrations, and the beautiful Va pensiero... became an informal national anthem of Italy. Even the name of the young composer became for the revolutionaries a homonym of Vittorio Emmanuele, Re d'Italia (V.E.R.D.I.).
Currently Nabucco by Giuseppe Verdi is on the repertoire of almost every opera theatre all over the world.
