Watch a passionate tale of a dangerous and forbidden love affair, all set to gorgeous music written by the maestro Halévy. La Juive arrives at the Sydney Opera this summer!

Why Watch La Juive

Director Olivier Py puts a twist on the classic story of La Juive by setting it in 1930's France, with the Holocaust looming on the horizon. The opera is a moving look at love and persecution, and the impressive production only serves to accentuate that. Rotating sets fill the stage with a dark grandeur, and elegant, monochromatic costumes give the characters a timeless look. The score offers audiences the rare treat of two sopranos, two tenors and a world-class bass in leading roles, as well as many dramatic crowd scenes. Young sopranos Natalie Aroyan and Stacey Alleaume perform as Rachel and Princess Eudoxie. They both love the turbulent Prince Léopold (played by Shanul Sharma). Diego Torre plays Eléazar, Rachel’s father and Roberto Scandiuzzi plays the powerful Cardinal de Brogni.

The Story

A young Christian girl, secretly the daughter of Cardinal de Brogni, was rescued from a fire by Eléazar, a Jewish man. He raises her as a Jewish girl, and as an adult, she falls in love with a young Christian man, secretly Prince Leopold in disguise. But 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. Can love conquer hatred?

This is a rare chance to revel in the grand music of one of the older French operas. From elevating sacred choruses to impassioned arias, Halévy’s historic opera is a sure treat for opera lovers all over.
