Housed in the architecturally interesting and controversial Golda Meir/Tel Aviv Center for the Performing Arts, the New Israeli Opera is the country’s newest cultural gem, performing a lively program of classic and modern opera. The company draws heavily on the talent of immigrants from the former Soviet Union. The piece de resistance of the 2013-14 season is a performance of La Traviata to be held at Masada. The Tel Aviv Center for the Performing Arts hosts classical, jazz, and popular concerts.
