Just before the performance of the opera "Don Giovanni" at the Tel Aviv Opera House, a section from the Declaration of Independence was projected on a giant screen as a sign of protest against the legal revolution led by the government.

The passage states, among other things, that the State of Israel "will be founded on the foundations of freedom, justice and peace in the light of the vision of the prophets of Israel, will maintain equality and social and political rights (...) will guarantee freedom of religion, conscience, language, education and culture, will protect the holy places of All religions, and be faithful to the principles of the United Nations Charter."

The audience responded with huge applause.



Yesterday, the music director of the Philharmonic Orchestra, conductor Lahav Shani, addressed the situation in Israel and the protest against the legal revolution.

In short words he said to the large crowd that filled the Culture Hall in Tel Aviv before the concert, he said: "I know you all came to hear a concert. We will immediately play all the music we prepared for you. All of us here on the stage hear the voices outside and we worry and are anxious for the future of our country."



After the audience interrupted Shani, applauded and parts of it even stood on their feet, Shani continued: "Our democracy is a miracle and the cultural life we ​​have built here in the last decades is a miracle and we must not under any circumstances lose what we have built. I hope we find a solution and unification soon."

After that, the audience clapped again and the orchestra broke into playing the national anthem "Hope".
