From the Arena di Verona: "Nabucco" by Giuseppe Verdi, conducted by Daniel Oren, directed by Denis Krief. With Leo Nucci (Nabucco), Fabio Sartori (Ismaele), Carlo Colombara (Zaccaria), Maria Guleghina (Abigaille), Nino Surguladze (Fenena) and Chorus & Orchestra of the Arena di Verona. "Nabucco" has long been at home in the Arena di Verona, and for many, the "Va pensiero" chorus is, along with the triumphal march from "Aida," the very embodiment of the Verona experience. This video production vividly captures this unique experience and provides the viewer with fascinating details that escape many of the Arena's spectators. Stage director Denis Krief casts the work in a sparse modern setting, providing a highly effective showcase for the true heroes of the evening, the singers under conductor Daniel Oren.
