"In Nabucco, Verdi talks about the time when there is a conflict between the two peoples - a very serious bloody religious conflict.
It is shown on the example of one particular royal family: Nabucco and his two daughters - Fenena and illegitimate Abigail. I and the whole of our creative group tried to find a parallel to this story in modern history and realized that the 1930s corresponded very precisely to it.
This is the time when dictatorial regimes were born and gained power in Europe ... Jews began to be persecuted, they became very unsettled in Europe, and many of them went to America and other places where it is safe ... The fear of the future that embraced people in those years , Was huge, all of Europe anticipated the approach of war.
We wanted to make our performance on this "nerve". "
Andrejs Zagars, director of the play
Love in time of war.
The Babylonian princess Finena, the daughter of Nabucco, and the leader of the Israeli army, Ismail, fell in love. Can they ever unite their lives?
Sister Finena, artful Abigail, too, was carried away by Ishmael. This cruel young woman imprisoned her father in prison. He went insane with grief.
Abigail craves power. She is ready to lead the Babylonian army.
The director transferred the opera to a strange room reminiscent of the interiors of the subway of the thirties of the twentieth century.
What a cold and gloomy dungeon! The enemies put Jews here who tried to hide from enemies dressed in black leather jackets.
The mind will return to Nabucco, but it's too early to rejoice. One of his daughters will die.
