And the little ones love it. They sit quiet and mesmerized as Shaul, her musicians and actor/dancers enact the composers’ lives and music. So, on to Mozart and his opera...

It’s the old story. Shepherd Bastien is in love with pretty shepherdess Bastienne but he’s flirting with the squire’s daughter. “Play hard to get,” the village wise-woman advises Bastienne. She does, Bastien comes running back, and it’s happily ever after for the young lovers.

Sung in Hebrew, Bastien and Bastienne plays at 5 and 6:30 pm at the Tel Aviv performing Arts Center from May 11 to 13.
