Television awards show cancelled Israel's top TV actors and producers will have to wait another month to collect their prizes. The Israeli Television Academy announced the postponement earlier this week of its 2006 awards show, which was to have aired Saturday night on Channel 2 from the David Intercontinental Hotel in Tel Aviv. The awards show is expected to be rescheduled for sometime in August, though no new date has been announced yet. Among the programs nominated for the top drama prize are BaTipul (In Treatment), the Assi Dayan showcase about a therapist and his patients, criminal drama Katav Plili (Criminal Letter) and Miluim (Reserves), the army-themed drama which began its second season last week. Comedy nominees include satirical sketch show Eretz Nehederet (A Wonderful Country), Haretsua (The Strip) and Olamo shel Reno Pascal (The World of Reno Pascal). - Nathan Burstein Yellow Submarine hosts flamenco night Israeli and Spanish dancers will take the stage for a flamenco show Saturday night at The Yellow Submarine club in Jerusalem. One of the featured artists will be "El Chato," a distinguished flamenco performer and instructor from Barcelona. El Chato, who's taught workshps in Madrid and Seville as well as Barcelona, has performed throughout Europe and in Japan, and is now making his professional debut in Jerusalem, where he'll be joined by an Israeli band and two other dancers. The performance begins at 9:30 p.m. - Adinah Greene Violin master course relocates Keshet Eilon, the annual violin master course that normally takes place at Kibbutz Eilon in the western Galilee, has been moved to calmer ground. Organizers have moved this year's master class to the Beit Berl Academy near Kfar Saba. Keshet Eilon will open as planned tomorrow and will conclude August 9 with a gala concert at the Tel Aviv Performing Arts Center. Major teachers and concert violinists are arriving in Israel to participate in the program, with roughly 50 students expected to join them from Israel, Russia, the United States and Europe. Among this year's prominent participants are Shlomo Mintz, a Juilliard-trained Israeli violinist who's performed with several of the world's top symphonies, and Ida Haendel, a fellow at London's Royal College of Music known to admirers as "the Grand Dame of the Violin." - Maxim Reider
