Spectacular Scenes!!!

Blood lust and threats of beheadings never looked so good as they did in Caracalla Dance Theatre's "Knights of the Moon," which played to standing-room-only crowds over the weekend at the Kennedy Center. Inflamed emotions may be bad for peacekeeping but they're a boon for theater, and this evening-length production was surely the most entertaining offering yet of the center's Arabesque: Arts of the Arab World festival.

The creativity of the Lebanese Abdel-Halim Caracalla contributes to the performances of his theater group involved all aspects from choreography, costume design, set design to music. He has given a strong emphasis to the visual aspects of his performances.
