Daniel Oren Returns to Conduct Norma
At the Israeli Opera
Following the immense success of La Juive and Nabucco in Masada last season, Israeli conductor Daniel Oren, one of the most sought after opera conductors in the world, returns in April to the Israeli Opera to lead a new production of Bellini's bel canto masterpiece – Norma.
Oren conducts regularly at the leading opera houses around the world including the Bastille in Paris and Covent Garden in London. But he always emphasizes that his real home is Israel.
Norma – Bellini's powerful drama set in the first century BC in Gaul, follows the dilemma of a Druid priestess who betrayed her people by having an affair with a conquering Roman officer and giving birth to two children.
As the Druids call to war against the Druids, Norma represents, for her own selfish reason, the voice of temperance before she publicly admits her crime and willingly accepts the punishment – death at the scaffold.
Norma – 13 performances with very few tickets left – call the box office now!
Norma, April 10-19 at the Opera House of the Tel Aviv Performing Arts Center
