    'Carmen' coming to Masada

    The Israeli Opera will perform "Carmen" at the foot of Masada in June. The Georgian mezzo-soprano Anita Rachvelishvili will reprise the title role, which she has also sung at La Scala in Milan, and at New York's Metropolitan Opera. The Masada production is set in the Wild West. There will be five performances of the production, which involves about 2,500 performers, stage technicians and other staff. The company's experience with mounting operas at the site Were a huge success. Those performances drew thousands of foreign visitors and were seen by more than 120,000 people.
