The power of this early piece by Giuseppe Verdi lies particularly in the impressive mass and choral scenes. The people of Babylon, led by King Nebuchadnezzar (Nabucco) invade Jerusalem, destroy Solomon’s Temple and take the Israelites into captivity. Yahweh, the God of Israelites, punishes the King by sending madness upon him. Nabucco, who has to counter intrigues of his alleged daughter Abigail eventually recognises his guilt, acknowledges the power and magnitude of Yahweh and grants freedom to the Israelites. At the time of the introduction of the opera the well-known Chorus of the Hebrew Slaves came to symbolise the longing of Italians for freedom and independence.
