The Metropolitan Opera begins a New Year of Saturday matinee broadcasts with Verdi’s thrilling early opera Nabucco. Baritone George Gagnidze stars in the title role as the tyrannical King of Babylon who proclaims himself a god. Soprano Liudmyla Monastyrska is Nabucco’s daughter Abagaille, driven by jealousy to claim the throne for herself. Bass Dmitry Belosselskiy is Zaccaria, the high priest of the Israelites, and mezzo-soprano Maria Barakova and tenor SeokJong Baek are Fenena and Ismaele, whose love transcends politics and religion.
