About Us

The Israeli Opera Friends Association
Chairperson: Mrs. Aliza Jaffa

The Israeli Opera Friends Association was initiated in order to support the work of the Israeli Opera, from the main stage productions to the educational activities for various groups, making opera accessible to as wide an audience as possible all over Israel and especially in the periphery, and to honing the craft of young opera singers who will become the future opera artists in the country.

Without the Friends’ contribution, these activities would not be possible.
The Friends of the Israeli Opera are invited to premiere performances of the opera productions. In addition, they enjoy numerous special events, most of which are free of charge: attending master classes and rehearsals, meeting artists, private concerts and VIP events and taking part in the opera educational programs. The Friends Association also organizes special tours for its members to enjoy opera festivals abroad (for an additional cost).
The Friends are entitled to reduced-price tickets to operatic and other performances held at the Tel Aviv Performing Arts Center, and receive personal ticketing service through the Friends’ office.
Among the members of the Israeli Opera Friends Association are individuals and public institutions who get acknowledgement in the Israeli Opera publications.
All contributions are tax deductible.
