In the opera that put Giuseppe Verdi on the map, follow the plight of the Jews of Babylonia as they are assaulted, conquered, and ultimately exiled from their homeland. Within this backdrop of exiles yearning for their homeland is a love story, but can love flourish in such a place and time? This opera captures the voice of the ancient Hebrews and their struggle as exiles. In fact, it speaks with the voice of all exiles. It will touch your heart if you, or your family, have endured the pain of yearning for your homeland. Experience the anguish as Nebuchadnezzar, King of Babylonia, destroys the Temple and forces the Hebrews from their homeland. Follow their journey as they are taken into bondage, and feel their grief. Will they survive in this new land or will they perish? And can love between two people endure in such a place? One of the highlights of the evening is the famous chorus "Va pensiero," which expresses the Hebrew slaves' longing for their homeland, and became the unofficial national anthem of Italy. It will bring you to tears.
