■ TEL AVIV is celebrating a period of festivals and milestone anniversaries – among them the Suzanne Dellal Center’s 25th anniversary. The cultural center held a major happening in its courtyard last week, but general manager Yair Vardi is planning much more, including performances on May 23 and 24 by the Batsheva Dance Company, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary. Batsheva’s artistic director Ohad Naharin, who is widely regarded as one of the world’s most talented choreographers, is constantly dreaming up new moves for his troupe.

■ STEPPING FROM dance to classical music, the Arthur Rubinstein Piano Competition is celebrating its 40th anniversary. Held in cooperation with the Tel Aviv Municipality and the Culture and Sport Ministry, the competition will run from May 13 to 29.
