The historical events are used as background for a romantic and political plot. The best-known number from the opera is the "Chorus of the Hebrew Slaves,”Va pensiero, sull’ali dorate"/"Fly, thought, on golden wings," a chorus which is regularly given an encore in many opera houses when performed today.
