Venture Cap guys in the hot Israeli software/tech start-up arena don’t “do” opera.

In Israel for the first time, ostensibly on business, referencing my Sunday night sortie to the opening of Leoncavallo’s Pagliacci at Israeli Opera, downtown Tel Aviv, seemed a good opening gambit after bumping elbows, or boldly shaking hands, in glitzy offices overlooking the Tel Aviv skyline. Courteous ice breaker for a Brit.
