De-Philippe-Edis-1 - still image

Opera in Israel owes its creation primarily to singer, director and producer Edis De Philippe, who founded the Israel National Opera Company in 1947 and ran it with an iron hand for the next thirty-two years. She appears here with Hanna Rovina and the opera set designer Michael Gottlieb, after a performance of La Traviata (1945).
