4th September - NABUCCO
Nabucco is a four acts composed in 1841 by Giuseppe Verdi and it is considered to have permanently established Verdi's reputation as a composer.
It follows the plight of the Jews as they are assaulted, conquered and subsequently exiled from their homeland by the Babylonian King Nabucco. The historical events are used as background for a romantic and political plot. The best-known number from the opera is the "Va, pensiero, sull'ali dorate" / "Fly, thought, on golden wings", a chorus which is regularly given an encore in many opera houses when performed today.
5th September - AIDA
Aida is the iconic opera to be seen in Verona.!
The Egyptians have captured and enslaved Aida, an Ethiopian princess.
Radames, an Egyptian military commander, struggles to choose between his love for her and his loyalty to the King of Egypt.
To complicate the story further, the King's daughter Amneris is in love with Radamès, although he does not return her feelings.
Everybody knows the Marcia trionfale but only in Verona you can see horses on stage.
