Among other things, Nitzan directed many plays by William Shakespeare, as well as other successful plays such as "The Caucasian Chalk Circle" and "The Servant of Two Masters".

Noam Semel, who worked alongside him at the Cameri Theater for many years, said that "35 years of professional marriage between us passed away this morning prematurely."



On Monday, a rehearsal was to begin for the play "Shake My Heart" by Hanoch Levin, directed by Habima.

Instead, on the same day around noon, his coffin will be placed in the Rubina Hall in the theater, and later in the day his funeral will be held in Kiryat Shaul in Tel Aviv.
