Musica Roma, review by Markus Engelhardt, head of Department of Music History in DHI, June 2018

Yuval’s “Giobbe” (Job) is an artistically fascinating and profoundly impressive message of the music-theatrical against increasing right-wing populism and anti-Semitic defamation worldwide. It is a reminder against forgetting and indifference, but it also offers hope, as did its Old Testament model”.

SKY ARTE, May 2018, Italy

“A visionary score that whirls together voices, sounds and images in an ancient biblical text, a classical performers cast of excellence, ancestral notes of traditional religious cantors linked with a powerful video-art creation. All this is JOB, the new icon-sonic opera by Israeli composer Yuval Avital that sets in the scenographic context of Rome’s Terme di Diocleziano from May 30 to June 1”.

Cittadellarte Journal, review by Francesco Saverio Teruzzi, June 2018

“Job makes us reflect on the fragility of fortune and on the need to open ourselves to the other, to keep in mind that we, born under a lucky star, can at any moment find ourselves on the other side, forced to flee, in need of help, strangers. Job requires us to put ourselves in the other’s shoes, it tells us without compromises that the future is not in our hands and that the needy people of today could be replaced by our son or brother tomorrow”.
