Summer Opera Program- Postponed to July 2022 

Due to the Covid-19 global pandemic, the management of the International Summer Opera Program in Tel Aviv, in collaboration with its local partners, have concluded that given the  travel restrictions and local prohibitions, the circumstances for hosting this event have made it impossible to execute a full international summer  program as planned.

We have therefore regretfully decided that the 2021 Summer Opera Program can not take place. 


The Program has been postponed to July 2022 .

Further details and final dates for next year’s Program will be published at a later time.

We wish you all safety and good health and very much hope to see you next summer in Tel Aviv.


The program was founded in the early 1990’s and has trained some of today’s finest classical vocalists who have sung in the world’s most important venues including The Metropolitan Opera, Covent Garden, La Scala, Paris Bastille and Chatelet, San Francisco Opera, Chicago Lyric Opera as well as the Staatsopers of Vienna, Munich, Berlin and Hamburg, the opera houses of Rome, Barcelona and Madrid.


The Tel Aviv Summer Opera has been fortunate to have an outstanding international faculty consisting of its program Artistic Director Kevin Murphy and voice teachers, conductors, coaches and stage directors.


Most recently these have included James Conlon, Trish McCaffrey, Dan Ettinger, Marzio Conte, Michael Schade, Jennifer Ringo, Chen Reiss, Michael Shell, Dan Gettinger, Louis Lohraseb, Shirit Lee Weiss, Julia Pevzner, Mark Schnaible, Abbie Furmansky, Bretton Brown, Armin Zanner, Claude Webster, Gary Jankowski, Chris Crans and Samantha Malk.


3 fully staged operas and 1 musical theater concert will be performed twice each with piano accompaniment. In addition there will be masterclasses, concerts and classes on the preparation of and business of the 21st century classical vocalist.

The program concludes with a gala concert of arias and ensembles from operas performed with orchestra.

The program will include:

Cosi fan tutte - Mozart

A Midsummer Night’s Dream - Britten

Der Zwerg – Zemlinsky                                                                          (Program subject to change)
