Yitzhak Rabin: Chronicle Of An Assassination

By
Amos Gitai

Filmmaker Amos Gitai returns to The Coronet Theatre with Yitzhak Rabin: Chronicle of an Assassination, a live performance based on his 2015 film Rabin, the Last Day, an investigation into the assassination in 1995 of the Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin, after a demonstration for peace and against violence in Tel-Aviv. The assassination cast a cold and brutal light on a dark and terrifying world—a world that made murder possible, which suddenly became apparent to a traumatised public.

Written by Amos Gitai and Marie-José Sanselme, and drawn from the memories of Leah Rabin, the Prime Minister’s widow, the production is a fable performed by an exceptional cast of singers, actors and musicians including Natalie Dessay, Irène Jacob and featuring the English Voices choir.

Four voices are brought together to create a recitative, “halfway between lament and lullaby,” to travel back through history and explore the incredible violence with which the nationalist forces fought the peace project, tearing Israel apart.
