Ten measures of beauty were given to the world. Nine were taken by Jerusalem, and one was distributed all over the earth

... as written in Talmud. A feast in this city of which the great Israel poet Yehuda Amichai said, Jerusalem is a port city on the shore of eternity.

The Jerusalem Lyric Opera Festival was established as a flagship event to show off Jerusalem as a destination for new and unique art experiences.
There are three main factors that make the Festival such a success:

First of all, the Lyric Opera Festival offers a broader artistic program: Jerusalem features operas, concerts, recitals, seminars, masterclasses, and more. And in the selection of works and interpretations, also offers the broadest spectrum from Handel, and Mozart, to modern works, from classical interpretations to avant-garde experimentation, from Bartok's Bluebeard Castle to Bizet's Carmen. Renowned artists from all over the world are invited to Jerusalem.

Furthermore, visitors to the Jerusalem Lyric Opera Festival can combine the enjoyment of art with vacationing. The unique combination of a contemporary space whilst retaining the ancient, spiritual hold makes visiting Jerusalem different from every other place in the world. The Festival beckons with incomparable performances.
And finally, the Jerusalem Lyric Opera Festival has an exceptional flair.
We look forward to seeing you in Jerusalem this summer!
