  Nabucco at Deaf West Theatre


Deaf West Theatre
5112 Lankershim Blvd. Los Angeles

A king driven mad. A bloodthirsty princess usurping power. A group of defenseless refugees struggling to fight back against their oppressors. If you think this sounds like something out of Game of Thrones you wouldn't be wrong -- but this epic drama full of backstabbing, violence and palace intrigue is actually Verdi's acclaimed opera Nabucco. Thaddeus Strassberger's production at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion in Los Angeles features opera superstar (and Three Tenors member) Plácido Domingo as the mad king Nabucco, whose campaign to drive the Jews from Babylon turns his family against itself. Nabucco doesn't feature any dragons, but it does include the Chorus of the Hebrew Slaves -- one of opera's most famous songs, which was once in the running to be Italy's national anthem.

"...Director Strassberger told his story in a straight forward dramatic manner. His scenery was both beautifully painted and functional. The very front of the stage held a delightful flower arrangement and a structure with baroque markings that hid the prompter's box. Mattie Ullrich's costumes were attractive and set the artists firmly in their time frames. Having actors as faux a 19th century audience allowed the singers to play to them occasionally, which amused the actual audience."

"...A welcome change from the old warhorses , Verdi’s NABUCCO has made a triumphant return to L.A.’s Music Center. Some of us sat through so many Traviatas, we feel like breaking into “Libiaahhhmo, libiamo” every time we have a drink. Nabucco is an early Verdi melodious masterpiece, all too rarely performed. And where are Ernani, Sicilian Vespers, Giovanna D’Arco and I Lombardi?"
