Masada opera 2015

SIXTH ANNUAL ISRAELI OPERA FESTIVAL AT MASASA: My Word: Masada’s music, magic and message. The Israeli Opera is marking its 30th anniversary and the Opera Festival at Masada is celebrating the milestone with performances of both Puccini’s ever popular Tosca and Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana. (Jerusalem Post).
It is the fifth time the Israeli Opera has staged a production at what Maestro Daniel Oren calls “This magic mountain.” On our way, we pass the red and pink beauty of desert rocks, the extraordinary blue hue of the Dead Sea, plenty of goats, a herd of wild camels, and several camels waiting for tourists to have their picture taken while riding them.
No, it's the sixth time. The first was in 2010.

CORRECTION: Nope, this is the fifth time after all.
