Sunday, October 20, 2019 21 Tishrei 5780

3:00 PM - 6:00 PM

The Claude Heater Foundation proudly presents: Verdi’s Nabucco. Called the “Jewish opera,” Nabucco is taken from the biblical and historical story of Babylonian King Nabucodonosor. The opera tells the story of the Jewish people being oppressed by Nabucco, resisting, and ultimately being freed by the once cruel king. Its aria “Va Pensiero,” known as the Prayer of the Hebrew Slaves, is one of the most beloved and inspirational of all operatic songs, expressing the emotions of oppressed people’s longing for freedom. This famous aria will be sung in Hebrew (with translation) for this performance.
