Claire returns to the Israeli Opera as Cleopatra in summer 2017!


We are thrilled to announce Claire's return to the Israeli Opera as Cleopatra in Handel's "Giulio Cesare in Egitto", for the summer opera festival at the beautiful historical Fortress Courtyard of the old city of Akko.

This new production will be directed by Tomer Zvulun, general and artistic director of the Atlanta Opera; and conducted by Israeli opera's head of music Ethan Schmeisser. A new production created especially for the Crusaders Court in Akko.

For full details:


"It was an energetic humane performance, with no compromise, in which we have discovered... the voices of two wonderful impressive soloists - the great deep bass of Alexey Kanounikoff and the amazingly beautiful soprano of Claire Meghnagi"...
