Watch the last production of The Met for this season – Mozart's The Magic Flute (Die Zauberflöte) – streamed live at the Jerusalem Cinematheque (11 Hebron Rd. at 7:55 p.m.).

The opera tells the story of a young man, Tamino, to whom the Queen of the Night offers a magic flute.

Tamino (Lawrence Brownlee) is meant to save her daughter, Pamina (Erin Morley), from Sarastro (Stephen Milling). In this mighty task, Tamino is aided by his friend Papageno (Thomas Oliemans), to whom magic bells are given. The hardships the two friends endure and the plot twists they encounter have charmed opera lovers since the opera was first staged in 1791.

Director Simon McBurney was lauded for this visually stunning and rich adaptation of the great opera, which runs for 185 minutes. NIS 170 per ticket. Call (02) 565-4333 to book. German with English subtitles. To learn more, visit:

Watch the film The Other City by director Livi Kessel, who documented how she and her friends rented a space in Haifa to serve as an art space and home for young artists.

The 8 p.m. online screening will be followed by a digital panel discussion with Kessel, at 9:30 p.m. The project, now entering its third year, offers the public a way to legally watch documentary films and meet the filmmakers online.
