About the Event
Hear one of Verdi's best‐known operas, Nabucco, in a production created by Keith Warner for the composer's 200th anniversary.
Nabucco tells the dramatic tale of Israelite subjugation under the Babylonian yoke of King Nebuchadnezzar. Keith Warner's production is set in the same period that the piece was written in, a time of transition from feudalism to a bourgeois, industrializing society. His interpretation focuses on the opposing natures of two nations – the modern Hebrews, whose culture is informed by a script and by education as a democratic ideal, and the militaristic Babylonians, whose concept of a state is founded in autocratic rule.

Deutsche Oper Berlin
Deutsche Oper Berlin is the biggest opera house in the German capital, and a member of the Berlin Opera Foundation established in the early 1900s. The original building was destroyed during the Second World War, but was eventually replaced, and the new theater opened in 1961 - six weeks after construction began on the Berlin Wall. Serving West Berlin, its sober, linear design avoids anything that might distract vistiors from the performance. The repertoire of the theater focuses on the great classics such as Mozart, Verdi and Strauss, but frequently presents contemporary opera as well. The Chorus of the Deutsche Oper has been named 'Chorus of the Year' many times for its outstanding performances.
