New appointment of the cycle that the Cinema Los Angeles dedicates to the Festival of the Arena of Verona. An operatic festival held every summer in the Italian city.

Giuseppe Verdi's masterpiece, Nabucco, opened the 2017 edition of the Verona Arena Festival, in a new staging of Arnaud Bernard. This opera in four acts, in a libretto by Temistocle Solera, represents ancient Babylon at its peak, and tells the story of the Jewish slaves who, supported by the Zacharia priest, fight for their freedom and their religious faith.

Created at the Scala di Milano in 1842, Nabucco was Giuseppe Verdi's first great success. In an Italy, then in the grip of nationalist movements, the public immediately identifies with the captive Hebrews in Babylon, which is equivalent to the opera being represented fifty-seven times in three months, instead of eight planned initial performances. mind . The slave choir "Go, I think" thus becomes one of the most famous melodies in the history of opera.
