The Opera House foyer, the gathering area between the main entrance and the auditorium doors, comprises three open levels, which create one harmonious space with a glass façade looking over the Opera House piazza.
The interior design of the foyer was created by architect-designer Ron Arad, who included in it different elements such as “the island”, wrapped by a spiralling curved ribbon made of steel and concrete, the bronze wall, the bars and the café furniture, whose design corresponds with the architectural nature of the foyer.
Visitors at the foyer can enjoy temporary art exhibitions, various performances at the small amphitheater, the café and the Zlil music shop. The box office is also located at the entrance of the foyer.
The foyer is open Sun.-Thu. between 9:30 am – 8:30 pm and on Fridays and holiday eves between 9:30 am – 1:00 pm. The foyer is also open during performances. The upper gallery opens half an hour before the performances.
