Ellen Kent Opera is going from strength to strength. This production of a Verdi classic is exciting, gripping and very dramatic. Nabucco was the very first opera they ever produced.

Nabucco is sometimes considered a one-hit show but it’s actually a blockbuster with a buzzing overture and loads of good tunes and arias. The plot boldly interweaves the Old Testament story with a sub-plot about love, jealousy and ambition.
