Product details

What happens when a Jewish woman befriends a Palestinian in Israel?

A chamber opera in three acts, The Aqueduct weaves together the enthralling sounds of Middle Eastern musical traditions with jazz to underscore the human side of the Israel-Palestine conflict.

Talia is a middle-class Jew from Melbourne who has grown up with an idealistic view of Israel as her true home; 'the land of milk and honey'. Amal, a Palestinian Muslim is a single mother who lives with her young children in a squalid settlement just outside Israeli borders.

The two women meet at the Aqueduct, a tourist attraction built under the 'old city' of Jerusalem during Roman times. They connect instantly, but can they rise above personal tragedy, cultural differences and bigotry?
