Never wanting in ambition, in 2014 Kennet Opera chose to present Verdi's first masterpiece, an opera seldom attempted by amateur companies. With outstanding singing and acting from visiting young professionals, and some glorious work for the chorus, 'Nabucco' was a triumph or, as one audience member said (unprompted) 'Better than Glyndebourne'!
From the programme:
"It combines glorious arias, duets and trios with a seminal role for the chorus, which has fine ensemble pieces and acts as a narrative spur" — Newbury Weekly News
"I have seen enough to realise that they have gone from strength to strength; with Nabucco ranking among one of their best" — Report (PDF) from NODA, the National Operatic and Dramatic Association
