Verdi Weekend 2019


Verdi’s music is singular. Even now, nearly 200 years later, his music moves opera fans like no other. With passionately emotive melodies and stirring, sincere stories, Verdi’s music touches hearts and minds at once. In his music, Verdi combined melodic brilliance, driving rhythm, and richly-drawn character sketches in a way uniquely his own. And he also wasn’t afraid of being popular: you can find hits in nearly all of his operas – “La donna è mobile” from Rigoletto, “Va, pensiero,” the chorus of the Hebrew slaves from Nabucco, or “Libiamo,” the rousing brindisi from La traviata – whose luster is as bright today as when it was first heard. This January, Verdi fans can immerse themselves in the works of this Italian master, as the Oper Leipzig presents three of Verdi’s grandest operas in one weekend: Nabucco, Rigoletto, and La traviata.
