The history behind this program:

Through generations the people of Andalucia used flamenco to express their anguish and their joy.

On the other side of Europe, the scholars in the Florence Academy came up with the enginius idea of creating Opera -

A larger than life experience that will express those emotions.

Both aims to express the human feelings to their fullness.

This is the base on which this show is built.

 

This is the first time a classical singer performs the authentic "Letras" of pure flamenco with their typical expressions and their unique rhythms

 

Beyn Broshim

A loving, gentle, evening songs recital

The magic of evening time: the soft farewell from a day's labor and the preparation for night's oblivion.

In every home in every land and cultures gentle hands are caressing innocent faces and beautiful tunes are being sang by loving voices.

In this recital, the most beautiful songs that have been adorning those intimate hours were collected by a loving hand, 

A fantastic collage of wonderful musical styles: 

the best that every culture has to offer:

Lied; the German artistic songs with their perfect match between text and music.

Shir; Israeli Lyrical melodies composed by immigrants weaving the sounds of their old homes with those of their new homeland.

Canción; Ladino, Flamenco and Spanish songs with their magical mixture of jewish, arabic and gypsy sounds.

Chanson: The lyrical beauty and enchanting melody of the french songs.

All of those are present here, in the warm embracing sound of Irit's voice, weaving the beauty of the evening time with that of the female voice.

Recreating the magic of our childhood fantasy and awakening the child in the listener's heart.

The childish smile have been smeared on the listener's faces through the whole event: proving that love may be called by different names in different languages, but essentially will always mean the same.

 

Killer Diva

The murderous women of the Opera world

We all heard: “it aint over till the fat lady sing!”

That is because usually she will sing a long heartbreaking aria before she dies of a disease led to by a broken heart, circumstances led to by a broken heart or simply by a broken heart.

But not all!

Just a few of the leading sopranos take it the other way.

They are a murderous creatures: by character, circumstances

or desire.

They are a strange creature in the world of opera that usually portrays the women as a perfect, beautiful and lovable creature.

Some are pure evil, like Lady Macbeth, other are educated in such a way that leaves them with no moral compass like Salome, another is Turandot who led hundreds of suiters to their gruesome death haunted by the memory of her ancestor's horrific rape. and of course the heroic and powerful Tosca that kills her attacker

We shall follow them, try to understand their motivation, and psychology as portrayed by the composer in the music he wrote for them. And of course be amazed by the power and beauty of the arias they sing.
