A young couple begins a dangerous, passionate affair. In their world, a Jew cannot love a Christian.

The punishment is death. When it all comes out, Rachel faces two impossible choices. Deny her love, and save her lover. Deny her God, and save herself.

Secrets, sex and bitter religious rivalries result in human tragedy on a grand scale.

This is a rare chance to revel in the gorgeous music of one of the great French operas. From sacred choruses to impassioned arias, Halévy’s epic opera is a tour-de-force.

Director Olivier Py’s production takes a haunting look at love and persecution.

Set in 1930s France with elegant, monochromatic costumes, the production offers glimpses of the Holocaust to come. Impressive rotating sets fill the stage with a dark grandeur.

The score offers audiences the rare gift of two sopranos, two tenors and a bass in leading roles, as well as dramatic crowd scenes.

Soprano Natalie Aroyan performs as Rachel with Diego Torre as her father, the impassioned Eléazar. Award-winning Shanul Sharma is Leopold. Lyric Coloratura Soprano Esther Song performs as Princess Eudoxie.

A CO-PRODUCTION BETWEEN OPERA AUSTRALIA AND THE OPÉRA NATIONAL DE LYON.
