For the fourth year in a row, the Israeli Opera Festival will take place at Masada. This year's performance will be conducted by Maestro Daniel Oren and directed by Michal Znaniecki. A conference discussing the opera festival will take place next week in Tel Aviv and will also give details about the first Akko Opera Festival. Both festivals will take place in June.
Masada is the site of an ancient Jewish stronghold. At the foot of the site is a concert area where popular musicians, classical performances and other events take place.
