Like any major cities, there are a number of performance spaces spread throughout - ranging from the amphitheatre in Hayarkon Park where all the major concerts take place through to the tiny Tmu Na and its fringe theatre/dance and music: from the 900 seat Beit Lessin Theatre on Dizengoff to the beautiful Suzanne Dellal Centre and the home of contemporary dance.
But there are two 'islands' of culture that are likely to attract most tourism. One contains the newly renovated (or, in real terms, rebuilt) Habimah Theatre, the unofficial national theatre which was established in Moscow in 1908 before setting up shop in Tel Aviv in 1928: the Mann Auditorium, home of the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra (currently closed for a much-needed overhaul) and the Helena Rubinstein Pavillion, an impressive 'wing' of the Tel Aviv Museum of Art.
The second 'island' is a couple kms further east along Shaul Hamelech. Here, the main body of the Tel Aviv Museum of art is to be found (including the stunning new wing) alongside the Beit Ariela Central Library, the Cameri Theatre (which many believe should be the national theatre of Israel) and the Tel Aviv Performing Arts Centre, home of the New Israeli Opera.
In addition to opera, TAPAC also presents some of the top large-scale dance companies in the world alongside major orchestral performances whilst the Cameri presents a number of plays from around the world in its extensive repertoire and regularly presents English surtitled performances.
The Tel-Aviv Performing Arts Center forms the centerpiece of the Golda Center (which also includes the Kameri Theater, Tel-Aviv Museum of Art and the central library - Beit Ariella).
This is the home of the Israeli Opera, but also holds many othrt types of musical performances: Dance, classical music, jazz, world music and more.
The building is an architectural masterpiece of the Israeli architect Yaakov Rechter, and was opened to the public in 1994. It was conceived not as a stand-alone monumental building, which would not fit well with the architecture and spirit of Tel-Aviv, but as a building with a strong presence but of himan proportions, an integral part of its surroundings and of the city. Its dimensions are proportional to the residential buildings across the street.
The lobby is very impressive and creates many interesting and unusual spaces. The interior of the hall is not over-decorated, and emphasizes the visual properties of the stage and the shows. The Tel-Aviv Performing Arts Center, along with the Israeli Opera and its productions, are something Tel-Aviv can be proud of.
