If you prefer to see a fully-staged Nabucco in the Bay Area this month, West Bay Opera is performing it on October 18, 20, 26, and 27. Directed by Layna Chianakas, the cast includes Jason Duika (Nabucco), Christina Major (Abigaille), Ben Brady (Zaccaria), Claudia Chapa (Fenena), and John Kun Park (Isamele), with orchestra and chorus. There's more information at Or go see both!

Thanks! I'm sadly unlikely to get to either, owing to prior commitments.
