WORLD PREMIERE

 

The Israeli Opera thanks the Jusidman Foundation for its generous support to this production

Synopsis

 in which the Jewish officer Alfred Dreyfuss who is accused of treason is humiliated. Horrified by what he has heard and seen, he abandons his home at night, trying to escape his failed marriage and the emerging anxiety in a world full of hate and incitement. 15 years earlier, Theodor Herzl, a young Viennese student, is proud to be accepted to a nationalistic student union. He has a great future ahead .  The opera Theodor combines these two periods in a man's lifetime – one minute before he made himself a legend. The night journey of the elderly Herzl is intertwined with moments of joy and hope of the young Theodor. Both long to belong, to get out of inner ghetto that feels their heart. Each in his own turn needs to create a new reality for himself.

Back Stage Secrets

Back Stage Secrets at the Opera
Many Opportunities to Widen your Opera Experience

Do you want to know more about the opera you are about to attend? Do you want to find out some back stage secrets? Do you want to meet the artists after the performance? The Israeli Opera enables you to widen your opera experience with a variety of pre performance and post-performance events. 

Towards Opening
On Saturday morning before the premiere, the creators of the production and several of the soloists gather to discuss the opera, the production, their own career and today’s opera world. This is a unique opportunity to learn as much as possible about the production and meet the director, conductor, designers and some of the participating soloists. Musical excerpts from the opera illustrate the discussion. Towards Opening takes place before some of each season’s productions.

Pre Performance Lecture
One hour before each opera performance there is a 30-minute introductory lecture in the auditorium (in Hebrew). Opera staffers present the opera and the production and enable the audience to get some extra information a short time before attending the performances. Admission is free for ticket holders. 

Opera Talkback
The curtain has just descended on the final scene of the opera. The hour is late. Nut the experience was riveting. This is the time to meet several of the performers. Come to listen and to speak. Ask questions. Meet the artists. A once in a lifetime opportunity to meet the artists who have just excited you on the stage. Opera Talkbacks takes place on the second level of the Opera House foyer and last around 30 minutes. Admission free. Opera Talkback takes place on several evenings in each production. Details can be found at the Israeli opera’s website.
