Conductor Zubin Mehta was born in India and has had a dazzling international career.  It is Israel, however, that he is most identified with. Since he first joined the Israeli Philharmonic Orchestra in 1969, he has developed strong ties with the state and become the face of its cultural excellence. Produced on the eve of Mehta’s 80th birthday, “Good Thoughts, Good Words, Good Deeds: The Conductor Zubin Mehta” is a timely celebration of the legendary maestro’s life and work.
