Tel Aviv is very well known for its beaches and nightlife, but the city is also home to some wonderful culture.
For a start, Tel Aviv is the home of one of the world’s best orchestras, the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra. This orchestra, which can trace its roots back close to 100 years, regularly performs around the world and works with the world’s top conductors and soloists. They perform on an almost weekly basis in Tel Aviv, at the Charles Bronfman Auditorium in the heart of the city, and they are always worth going to hear.
Art lovers will find a range of art galleries and exhibitions. There is the huge Tel Aviv Museum of Art, which is home to a vast collection from Israeli and other artists. You will also find a number of smaller galleries, such as Noga Gallery of Contemporary Art, the Rubin Museum, and the Nahum Gutman Museum of Art. There are always new exhibitions opening, and more than enough to see.
Israeli is also home to a thriving theatre scene, and while the language barrier is often a problem, you will occasionally find productions with subtitles. However, you can certainly go to see some excellent contemporary dance, as Tel Aviv is home to some of the world’s leading contemporary dance groups such as the Inbal Dance Theatre Company.
If you are looking for something a little more traditional, then Tel Aviv is also home to the New Israeli Opera and there are a range of productions on throughout the season, including favourites such as Carmen, visiting ballet companies, and more traditional musicals such as Annie.
In short, if you want to enjoy some quality art, music, dance, or any other form of culture, then Tel Aviv has plenty to offer.
