It's the second time "Helikon" visited Tel Aviv. Last year Israel people saw "The Tsar's Bride", "Mazepa" and "Pyramus and Thisbe". This year the theatre debuted in Jerusalem and repeated its success.


At leisure time Helikon people had a lot of adventures. We visited Jerusalem, Nazareth, Bethlehem, Kana.


We bathed in the Meditteranean sea and Holy Jordan. Together celebrated birthday of the chief "Helikon-Opera" choirmaster Denis Kirpanev. We had fun at 100%!

Leaving was not easy. But we said "see you soon" to Israel. Next year "Helikon-Opera" will perform in New Israel Opera with "Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk District" and "Boris Godunov".
