The Sound of Music - Bet Tzvi Library Theater
Take your family before the 26th of January to see The Sound of Music at the Ramat Gan Theater. This is a production by the Sifriya (Library) Theater, a professional theater giving performance opportunities to graduates of the Bet Tzvi Theater School.
It’s rare that a such a popular English language musical is staged in Israel. The adults in the audience will hum along to the familiar tunes of Rodgers and Hammerstein while the younger audience will enjoy both the music the memorable story of the Von Trapp family. Don’t let the fact that the production is in Hebrew dissuade you - the production directed by Arthur Kogan is excellent. I found myself singing along in my head in English. The performances by the entire cast are first rate most notably from Nitzan Eshel (rotating with Tal Ginat) as Maria, David Friedman as Baron Von Trapp and Hila Maarbi (rotating with Nitzan Kravitz) as Mother Superior.
The audience was comprised of adults and children (both Hebrew and English speakers) and EVERYONE enjoyed themselves. Some kids even applauded when the Baron finally kissed Maria. You will love the show and so will your kids! Seriously folks – this is an opportunity!
The production has been extended until the 26th of January – best to call the Ramat Gan Theater for tickets as the website hasn’t been updated. Tickets are 150 NIS with deals available with various credit card deals. 03-579-9290
