* Directed and designed by Paolo Panizza, this production captures the emotion and vigor that is the great story of Nabucco. Set in Old Testament Biblical times, the story revolves around King Nabucco and his two daughters, Fenena and Abigaille, Jewish persecution and a struggle for power.

Read more sets were intended to have no specific origin, and the designs do indeed consist of a mixture of styles, rich in colour, texture and with suitable grandure where necessary.

* Italian Ambrogio Maestri leads a superb cast in the title role as Nabucco.
