The Jerusalem Lyric Opera Festival was established as a flagship event to show off Jerusalem as a destination for new and unique art experiences.

The Lyric Opera Festival offers a broader artistic program: Jerusalem features operas, concerts, recitals, seminars, masterclasses, and more. And in the selection of works and interpretations, also offers the broadest spectrum from Handel, and Mozart, to modern works, from classical interpretations to avant-garde experimentation, from Bartok's Bluebeard Castle to Bizet's Carmen. Renowned artists from all over the world are invited to Jerusalem.
