Notes and Editorial Reviews

Verdi's Nabucco confronts the monumental themes of religious difference and nationhood that are so apposite today. Nabucco is famous for its deeply moving choruses and is a unique showcase for Opera Australia's magnificent chorus.

"Jonathan Summers...was in wonderful voice and gave a performance of rich intensity and dramatic power." -- The Australian

"The Hebrews' choral lament, Va Pensiero, perhaps Verdi's most famous piece was given thrilling voice by The Australian Opera Chorus." -- The Australian

This production features Jonathan Summers, Elizabeth Connell, Bruce Martin, The Australian Opera Chorus, State Orchestra Of Victoria
