The Israeli Opera, formerly known as the New Israeli Opera, is the principal opera company of Israel. It was founded in 1985 after lack of Israeli government funding led to the demise of the Israel National Opera.
Since 1994 the Tel Aviv Performing Arts Center has been its main performance venue. The company also founded the Israeli Opera Festival which has performed large-scale outdoor productions, originally at Caesarea, and from 2010 in Masada.
Meitar Opera Sudio is a practical study and performance program for young Israeli opera singers who graduated from any given music academy and who are on the verge of embarking on an operatic career. The major goal of the Opera Studio is to nurture operatic talent in Israel and to help young opera singers to work in their profession. The Opera Studio program is aimed at young Israeli opera singers who are willing to hone their craft, further their studies on an ongoing basis and gain stage experience, thus getting ready for a full-fledged operatic career.
In this new video, the young Israeli opera singers of the Meitar Opera Studio use their operatic voices to convey a very timely greeting - Shana tova, sh'nat shalom v'ahava -- Wishing you a good year, a year of peace and love.
