Conductor Valery Gergiev and the Mariinsky Opera of St. Petersburg will return to Eilat from January 3-6 for the Classics at the Red Sea Festival. Outstanding programs include Mahler's "Third Symphony" and Berlioz's "Damnation of Faust". Since its inception seven years ago, the festival has showcased the conducting capabilities of Gergiev, who also serves as the festival's artistic director and has worked with the London Symphony Orchestra, the Metropolitan Opera, La Scala and the acclaimed Kirov Opera House. Classics at the Red Sea was discontinued after 1999 for lack of funding, a problem that seems to have been solved because Gergiev has promised he'll stay with the festival until 2008. Hundreds of artists, soloists, choirs and the Mariinsky symphony of 300 will join Gergiev in Eilat. Thousands of music fans are expected to attend. For more information and for tickets call: (03)-516-9121 or (03) 516-9137.
