This summer, Seattle Opera is excited to present a great Verdi opera we’ve never before produced: Nabucco, the first masterpiece by the composer who can be described as the Shakespeare of opera. Since our first Rigoletto in 1965, Seattle Opera has produced most (but not all!) of Verdi’s operas, starring singers such as Richard Tucker, Fiorenza Cossotto, James McCracken, Beverly Sills, Matteo Manuguerra, Grace Bumbry, Gordon Hawkins, Stephanie Blythe, and many others. Explore these memories of great Verdi productions at Seattle Opera.
