Nabucco will be broadcast into cinemas worldwide for one night only on Monday 29 April. Eden Cinemas will be presenting the spectacle at 8.15pm.
Plácido Domingo, one of the most celebrated talents of our time, is making a major role debut. This is a rare chance to see a genre-defining masterwork, containing some of the greatest choral music ever written, along with some wonderful arias and ensembles. This new production of Nabucco is unmissable.
The story is the epic Biblical tale of King Nebuchadnezzar and the bitter war between the Babylonians and the Israelites. Verdi’s rich score offers melody, power and raw drama on a scale that does full justice to the opera’s epic themes of nationhood, faith, love and redemption and calls upon the full might of the Orchestra of the Royal Opera House and Royal Opera Chorus.
Domingo is joined by an exciting young cast including Ukranian soprano Liudmyla Monastyrska (Lady Macbeth in Macbeth for The Royal Opera, 2011) as the power-hungry priestess Abigaille. Acclaimed theatre and opera directorDaniele Abbado makes his Royal Opera debut directing this coproductionwith La Scala, Milan. This is all brought to life in stunning detail and in High Definition on the big screen.
