On Sunday, May 26th from 2 p.m.- 5 p.m. opera lovers will have the opportunity to hear the famed tenor Domingo in the title role when Opera in Cinema presents a performance of Nabucco from London's Royal Opera.

Nabucco is the opera considered to have permanently established Verdi's reputation as a composer. He commented that "this is the opera with which my artistic career really begins. And though I had many difficulties to fight against, it is certain that Nabucco was born under a lucky star."

In the story of Nabucco (Eng. Nebuchadnezzar), war has broken out between the Babylonians and Israelites. The Israelites have captured Fenena, younger daughter of the Babylonian King, Nabucco. In revenge, Nabucco vows to destroy Jerusalem, aided by the vengeful Abigaille.
