Opera returns to Acre

If atmosphere by the ton is your thing, then you might want to attend the third Acre Opera Festival, taking place at the Acre Crusader fortress from July 28 through 30.

This year the festival will be staged in the courtyard of the Knights’ Halls, a fine natural backdrop to the Israel Opera’s cross-cultural production of Mozart’s Abduction from the Seraglio directed by Shirit Weiss with the Israel Camerata conducted by Daniel Cohen. The singers will sing in German, but the dialogues are in Hebrew. Arab actor George Iskandar makes his IO debut as the Pasha Selim.
