I'm not sure that it's the right place to tell talk about it, but anyway...
This June was the second opera festival in Israel, and "Jerusalem" by Verdi was preformed at... Jerusalem and "Aida" by Verdy was performed at the Masada site by the Dead sea.

The costumes and the view of the Masada and Jerusalem were amazing!
I must say the tickets were VERY expensive, but they all sold out.
