Gani Yeoshua, Tel Aviv, FREE
Opera in the park is back! The Tel Aviv-Jaffa Municipality and the Israeli Opera are proud to present “Nabucco” – the favorite opera by Giuseppe Verdi.
Ganei Yehoshua Park
20:30 Start of the show
Admission is free!
For those who do not know, a few details about Nabucco:
“Nabucco” tells the story of the destruction of Jerusalem and the First Temple by Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon (Nabucco), and the attempts of the Jewish people to stop the tragedy. She describes the destruction of the Temple by Nabucco’s troops, and follows the desire of the Israelites in the Babylonian exile to live a life of freedom in their homeland again. It is no wonder that the singing of the opera choir in the opera soon became Italy’s unofficial anthem, and to this day it is considered one of the most patriotic pleasures in Italian history, and one of the most beautiful in the opera choral repertoire in general.
Opera tradition in Tel Aviv-Jaffa:
The Nabucco show in the park continues the tradition of open opera productions in Ganei Yehoshua Park. 16 years since the debut of the La Traviata in Rabin Square in an open production to the public, and since then every year thousands of spectators come to watch these large opera productions that are open to the public free of charge, a great cultural experience for the whole family.
The Opera Orchestra – “The Rishon LeZion Symphony Orchestra” will win this year Yishai Steckler. The production that was created especially for the park will be directed by Gadi Shechter, who directed most of the park’s productions in recent years. The Israeli Opera Choir will be conducted by Eitan Schmeisser. A team of Israeli and international soloists will lead the production.
Translation subtitles will appear on side screens in Hebrew. In the park, chairs will be spread out in a limited number, for the benefit of the general public. The show will be broadcast live on educational television.
