Enter our online competition for the chance to win tickets to see Verdi’s powerful opera Nabucco in Buxton next weekend.

The Advertiser has a pair of tickets up for grabs to the Ellen Kent production on Sunday March 9 at Buxton Opera House, plus a print (pictured below) of Ralph Steadman’s painting of a Nabucco scene.

Verdi’s haunting and melodic chorus of the Hebrew slaves follows the plight of the Hebrews as they are forced from their homeland into exile by the Babylonian King Nabucco. The powerful tale is laced with revenge, destruction and jealousy.

Starring international guest soloists and the celebrated Chisinau National Opera Chorus, the spectacular traditionally-staged production also features magnificent sets and costumes with amazing lighting and stage effects.

The opera is sung in Italian with English surtitles.

To be in with a chance of winning tickets and the print, simply email your name, address and contact telephone number to, making sure ‘Nabucco Competition’ appears in the subject header.

One winner will be drawn at random after the entry deadline of 12pm on Wednesday March 5. Usual competition rules apply and are available on request. The Editor’s decision is final.

• Tickets for the performance on Sunday March 9, at 7.30pm, are priced between £21 and £36. They are available from the Buxton Opera House box office on 0845 127 2190 or online at
