Verdi’s Nabucco at at Loyola Chapel in Montreal

Carmina Choir proudly presents Verdi’s Nabucco, in a specially adapted one and a half  hour English version
which will be semi-staged on October 26th at Loyola Chapel.

The historical events of the assault, conquering and exile of the Jews by the Babylonian King  Nabuchadnezzar (Nabucco) are used as background for a romantic and political plot in which two Babylonian sisters vy for the love of Ismael, nephew of the King of Jerusalem.  Nabucco looses his
mind and throne, a price he pays for declaring himself God. This opera features possibly the most famous of all choruses, “Va pensiero sull’ ali dorate”. But Jehovah is merciful, as they discover, and the Hebrews are
freed as Nabucco  reclaims his  throne and embraces the God of Israel.
