Weinberg's opera 'The Passenger' for the first time in Israel

Save the date: On 30 April 2019, the 2010 Bregenz version of Weinberg’s Opera The Passenger by David Pountney will see its first performance at the Israeli Opera in Tel Aviv. American conductor Steven Mercurio will be directing the Israel Symphony Orchestra Rishon LeZion. The Bregenz version has been adapted by various other opera houses and has been on stage in Warsaw, London, Houston, Chicago, Detroit and Miami. A first Israeli performance of this opera, which revolves around the persecution of Jewish people in the Third Reich, is most certainly going to be a highlight in the Weinberg Centenary Year.
