The Chorus of the Poznań Opera House is often praised, and anyone who would like to hear for themselves how exquisite the group is should definitely see Nabucco. The librettist – Temistocle Solera – made the Israeli community one of his heroes, the composer – Giuseppe Verdi – provided them with particularly powerful fragments (with the masterly Va, pensiero to begin with), and the director – Marek Weiss – trusted them and let the voice of the people be heard. Soloists have it a bit harder – the titular Nabucodonosor not only has to do horse riding, but he also has to sing while sitting in the saddle (to calm you down, we assure you that Folga takes it with the dignity of a stage-experienced diva), and Abigail really visits the hanging gardens. There is definitely no room for boredom here.
A great recommendation for the lovers if choirs and Verdi or for the lovers of Verdi's choirs.
