Opera's Savior?

TEL AVIV (JNI) — Can
the musical "Oklahon- "
save the Israel Natic„
Opera? The company hopes
that their Hebrew produc-
tion will attract a large and
young audience, and thus
keep the curtain from com-
ing down permanently.
The Education and Cul-
ture Ministry recently de-
cided to stop funding the
opera on the grounds that it
does not attract a sizable
audience.
