"Similar to the Hebrew slaves about whom the work was originally written, the choir singers also mourn the destruction of their temple, the opera house."

In protest of the layoff of 55 out of 62 opera singers, singers from the Israel Opera Choir gathered outside the Opera House to perform the Aria of the Hebrew Slaves from Verdi’s Nabucco. The performance was under the direction of the Israeli Opera's conductor, Yishai Steckler and the retired choir conductor. 
"Similar to the Hebrew slaves about whom the work was originally written, the choir singers also mourn the destruction of their temple, the opera house," the group said in a statement. "Slaves are those who earn an average of NIS 50,000 a year, and are fired by those who earn about NIS 50,000 a month.
