Placido Domingo leads the LA Opera in the title role of Verdi’s “Nabucco” on this week’s Sunday Opera (9/30 3:00 p.m). Joining Domingo is Liudmyla Monastryska as the treacherous Abigaille. Rounding out the cast are Mario Chang as Ismaele, Nancy Fabiola Herrera as Fenena, and Liv Redpath as Anna in this tale of treachery and redemption that follows Nabucco through his madness, the seizure of his throne by Abigaille, and Nabucco’s restoration through his newly found faith and Abigaille’s suicide. James Conlon conducts the LA Opera Chorus and Orchestra.
After the opera, join host Michael Kownacky for Antonin Dvorak’s Stabat Mater, a cantata begun after the death of his daughter Josefa only to be completed upon the deaths of his two remaining children one year later.
