Says Tiran: “Ever since I became an actor I’ve always tried to connect between the worlds of theater and music. I’m thrilled and excited that I have the chance to create this opera in this incredible space.”

The all Israeli cast features amazing soprano Alla Vassilevitsky as the Countess, baritone Yair Politchuk as the wily Figaro, baritone Oded Reich as the faithless Count, soprano Hila Baggio as the resourceful Susanna and mezzo Na’ama Goldman as the mischievous Cherubino.

In contrast, the Three Tenors are visitors, Gaston Rivero from Uruguay, with Salavatore Cordella and Domenic Manini from Italy, singing famous tenor party pieces as well as Neapolitan songs and more. Additionally, the kids and their families can enjoy Cinderella (about an hour) in the Knight’s Hall.

Tickets to Figaro and Three Tenors are a pricey NIS 350 and 250 respectively with a more reasonable NIS 80 for Cinderella.

And let’s not forget that Old Acre is a UNESCO World heritage site.
