Opera comes back to the park

After a hiatus of several years, the Israeli opera is coming back to Tel Aviv's Yarkon Park with performances free to the general public. September 15th will see Giacomo Puccini's famous Madame Butterfly, with modern enhancements.

After a hiatus of several years, the Israeli opera and Tel Aviv Municipality are resuming performances in the city's Yarkon Park, free to the public. The tradition will resume Thursday, September 15, with a new and unique production—Madame Butterfly.



Holding free operas began 15 years ago in Rabin Square in Tel Aviv and eventually moved to Ganei Yehoshua in Yarkon Park. More than 20,000 people attended every year to hear the sounds of opera and see the hundreds of great performers and musicians hosted by Mayor Ron Huldai.

Madame Butterfly, by Giacomo Puccini, is considered to be one of the most beloved operas since it made its debut in 1904 at the Teatro alla Scala in Milan. The performance will feature an updated version featuring video art that is tailored to a broader audience and will last approximately an hour and a half.
