This season NIO presented the world première of a new commission by a young Israeli composer, Gil Shohat -- whose Alpha and Omega (January 2001) was a resounding success; several mainstream operas in new and co-productions including Norma and Billy Budd, an adaptation of The Magic Flute (The Little Magic Flute -- for children) productions, and an operetta and musical, while two Verdi operas, including a brand new Otello, will shortly resound in the splendid open-air arena during the International Opera Festival in Caesarea dedicated this year to the Verdi Centenary. The diary for next year is equally ambitious, with several major productions, and an operetta and musical.
