The Tel Aviv municipality has announced the Rosenblum prize winners for 2005. Israel Ballet artistic director and choreographer Berta Yampolsky and veteran Cameri actor Yosef Carmon both received Life Achievement Awards. Kibbutz Dance Company artistic director and choreographer Rami Beer and composer Yosef Bardanashvili both received the award for Outstanding Creative Achievement while writer Nava Semel and composer Ella Milch-Sheriff were honored for "a breakthrough operatic work." The aforementioned work, "A Rat Laughs," is based on the novel by Semel with music by Milch-Sheriff that premiered brilliantly at the Cameri Theater in April and for which Milch-Sheriff was recently awarded the Prime Minister's Prize. Yampolsky with her husband Hillel Mittelman founded the Israel Ballet in 1967. The Nutcracker, Cinderella and Romeo and Juliet are among the 30 ballets she has created on the company. Carmon starred in Amos Gitai's film, Alila, last year, but it's his stage career that gleams the brightest. He acted in nearly all Hanoch Levin's plays, including Requiem that has toured world wide, and in many other Cameri productions such as the controversial Fleischer. Beer was honored for, among others, On Reaching the Sun and Bardanashvili for the opera Journey to the End of the Millennium, both of which premiered this year. The awards ceremony is December 20.
