Jerusalem Performing Arts

Classical music is the capital's strong suit. Artists in other musical genres pass through from time to time, but Jerusalem is seldom their main focus. For English-language schedules of performances and other cultural events, consult the Friday weekend section of the Jerusalem Post and its insert "In Jerusalem," Friday's "The Guide" of Haaretz's English edition, Time Out Jerusalem,

and the free weekly and monthly booklets available at hotels and information bureaus. Ticket prices typically range from NIS 75 to NIS 350, depending on venue size and artist.
