Meet In Galilee organizes the wonderful encounter between Mozart's musical work and the history of the region. 

Located north of Israel, Galilee, a mountainous region with green valleys, is, like many places in Israel, important for many peoples and religions.

In the course of history, Galilee was occupied by the Roman Empire, the Jewish people, Muslims and Christians. It is also the place where the Druze religion was born.

In this region lies, among others, Nazareth, birthplace of Jesus, but also the lake of Tiberias, where he walked on the water. Moreover, in the Middle Ages, during the crusades organized by the Church to liberate the Holy Land, St. John of Acre (Akko in Hebrew), became the main port of all Christian institutions in the Middle East. And it is in this city where our Opera Festival takes place!

A wonderful blend of historical and cultural discovery.

Our association

The raison d'être of Meet in Galilee is to create a space beyond all frontiers of whatever order, to break the preconceptions about the region, to make known Saint Jean d'Acre, land where the different communities know how to live together.


In this spirit, Meet in Galilee organizes every two years a festival of lyrical art coupled with an economic and / or scientific forum.
