Presented by Opera Philadelphia and NMAJH, this free one-hour program will include selections from several Verdi operas including highlights from his first blockbuster success, Nabucco, which opens Opera Philadelphia’s 2013-2014 Season. Recounting the biblical story of Nebuchadnezzar, Verdi’s rousing melodies, like the famous “Chorus of Hebrew Slaves (Va, pensiero),” moved the Italian states to unify as a nation.
Several cast members from Opera Philadelphia’s production of Nabucco will perform, including two Metropolitan Opera National Council Audition Winners, mezzo-soprano Margaret Mezzacappa and bass-baritone Musa Ngqungwana.
Reservations are required to attend A Taste of Opera. Registration will open soon.
