The Temple of Salomon - Gli arredi festivi (from Nabucco) - La Scala
  • Classical music composed by Giuseppe Verdi "Solomon's Temple, also known as the First Temple, was constructed by Solomon, king of the ancient Israelites, on mount Moriah in Jerusalem according to the Hebrew Bible ... The Temple was plundered by the Babylonian king Nebuchadnezzar ('Nabucco'), during the brief reign of Jehoiachin c. 598 (2 Kings 24:13), Josiah's grandson. The Babylonians attacked Jerusalem again and burned the Temple in 597 BCE, along with most of the city (2 Kings 25)." ****************************** NABUCCO (short for Nebuchadnezzar) is an opera by Giuseppe Verdi to an Italian libretto by Temistocle Solera, based on the Biblical story. It is Verdi's third opera and the one which is considered to have permanently established his reputation as a composer. Nabucco follows the plight of the Jews as they are assaulted, conquered, and subsequently exiled from their homeland by the Babylonian King Nabucco. The historical events are used as background for a romantic and political plot. Its first performance took place on 9 March 1842 at the Teatro alla Scala, Milan.
