Lyric Opera Lecture Series: Nabucco

altTuesday, January 26, Noon, North Branch
Saturday, January 23, 2 pm, Seminar Room, Main Library

Join us for a lecture on Verdi's Nabucco presented by Jean Joslyn of the Lyric Opera Lecture Corps.

Politics. Religion. A dangerous love triangle. Plus two killer roles and some of the greatest choral music ever written, including the soul-stirring "Va, pensiero" chorus. This is the opera that made Verdi a star!
On one side, the fiery Hebrew priest Zaccaria, battling to lead his people from oppression. On the other, Nabucco, the tyrannical Babylonian king and his formidable adopted daughter Abigaille, who will stop at nothing to get her father's throne and her sister's lover.
