Neil Shicoff, honorary advisor, Israeli Opera House, Seder
Toward the Jewish Passover Holidays, the Israeli Opera House presented "La Juive" by Halevy. T h is was an obvious choice, since the second act of the opera is dedicated to the "Seder"-the ritual Passover meal which commemorates the flight of the Jews from Egypt (by reading its story and eating "matzot': the unfinished bread taken on the exodus).
