Cleopatra at the Israeli Opera in summer 2017! July 10, 2017
We are thrilled to announce Claire’s return to the Israeli Opera as Cleopatra in Handel’s “Giulio Cesare in Egitto”, for the summer opera festival at the beautiful historical Fortress Courtyard of the old city of Acre. One of Claire’s signature roles, she is happy to sing Cleopatra for the first time at her homeland with an all-Israeli cast.
This new production will be directed by Tomer Zvulun, general and artistic director of the Atlanta Opera; and conducted by Israeli opera’s head of music Ethan Schmeisser. This is a new production created especially for the Crusaders Court in Akko.
