Greek National Opera
by Giuseppe Verdi
One of Verdi’s most popular operas, Nabucco will once again be presented at the Odeon of Herodes Atticus in a Greek National Opera production. A watershed in Verdi’s career, Nabucco put an end to a string of failures for the composer, as well as marking the end of a period of great sadness in his life. The opera is perhaps best known for the chorus of the Hebrew slaves, serving as a quasi-national hymn for Italy, conveying Italians’ collective resistance against the Austrian occupation. Nabucco is also well-known for its demanding baritone, soprano and bass roles.
The celebrated Greek baritone Dimitri Platanias will portray the title role, having already received acclaim for this performance at prestigious venues around the world, including the Royal Opera House (Covent Garden), the Bavarian State Opera (Bayerische Staatsoper), the Florence Opera (Opera di Firenze), the Palau de les Arts Reina Sofia, and the Opera Stuttgart (Oper Stuttgart).
The performance will be directed by Leo Muscato, a rising star of Italian opera, in his first ever collaboration with the Greek National Opera. Distinguished for his direction of Verdi and Puccini operas, Muscato has seen his performances presented at some of the top opera houses in Italy (Rome, Venice, Florence, Turin).
