Habimah Theater

   Literally, "the stage"; Israel's national Hebrew theater, based in Tel Aviv. Founded as a Hebrew-language theater by directors Nahum Zemach and Constantin Stanislavsky in Moscow in 1917, it moved permanently to Palestine in 1931. Among its early star performers was Hanna Rovina, the "First Lady of Hebrew Theater." Today, the theater's repertoire includes traditional plays on Jewish themes, works of contemporary Hebrew playwrights, and translations of international works.
