The Herzliya Performing Arts Center marks Valentine's Day with a weekend marathon of love-themed events that starts this Thursday. Alongside the shows and lectures designed to shed light on the subject from different angles, attendees will be treated to wine, chocolate and other romantic delights. The marathon starts with an evening of drinking songs hosted by Dan Almagor and featuring Miki Gavrielov, Yisrael Gurion and Yossi Lev. Meanwhile, in a smaller hall, Dr. Haim Shapiro leads an interactive lecture on "Love and the Seven Deadly Sins." Friday afternoon will be devoted to romance on stage and on screen. Greatest theatrical love scenes are brought together in a video. Filmmaker Nissim Dayan discusses love as projected on the silver screen, with excerpts going back to the films from the 1930s. Dayan will also examine moments when the cinema's treatment of love crossed the line of the erotic into the territory of the pornographic. On Friday night, the Idan Reichal Project, with its uniquely Israeli-Ethiopian cross-cultural mix, will perform a show of its hugely popular love songs. Saturday will offer two lectures on erotica and love in the Far East. One deals with the world of the 16th-century geisha - and modern Japanese courtships mores. The other looks at the ancient Indian manual of love and sex, the Kama Sutra. Also on Saturday morning, singers from the Israel Opera will present "Opera, Women and Wine" (pictured) with excerpts from works such as La Traviata, Rigoletto and Don Giovanni. The marathon concludes with an evening of Ladino love songs, featuring singers Gila Hassid and Lazer Bueno, and author and storyteller Margalit Toubi. Tickets: 1-700-702929.
