Verdi's Nabucco tends to be respected and loved by opera devotees for two particular reasons: the chorus of the Hebrew slaves, 'Va, pensiero,' and the especially difficult soprano role of Abigaille, sung in this production by the renowned dramatic soprano, Maria Guleghina.

The libretto follows the plight of the Jews as they are assaulted, conquered and subsequently exiled from their homeland by the Babylonian King Nabucco (in English, Nebuchadnezzar II). These historical events are used as a background for a romantic and political plot.
