Halévy’s La Juive follows the best traditions of French opera and the composer created it based on the libretto by the excellent French playwright Eugène Scribe, who was the author of the text templates for many other great works by world-famous authors Meyerbeer, Auber, Bellini, Rossini and Verdi. The forefront of the opera relief bears the strong individual emotional story, a loving relationship between Christian Leopold and Jew Rachel set to a background of a contradictory social context. Halévy provides us with a picture of society that is admittedly divided and intolerant of relationships between people of different faiths. In the enhanced context of content, the message of the piece is the menacing image of intolerance, fanaticism and hatred preventing human understanding and solidarity, a depiction urgently current in today’s day and age. The directorial concept by the great director Peter Konwitschny features full and devastating resonance.

La Jiuive has been prepared by the SND Opera in collaboration with Antwerp and Gente Flemish National Opera and the Mannheim National Theatre.
