A series of artistic performances and shows is all set to entertain residents and visitors at the Katara – the Cultural Village as part of the Eid al-Adha celebrations in Doha from September 1, it was announced.
In a statement, Katara said people will enjoy the artistic show inspired by the Arab heritage, which revolves around the famous character of Arabian tales and his comic stories that mix excitement and suspense.
The stories will be presented daily in an interactive manner through an “attraction shadow theatre,” known as a modern technique using bright colours and shapes designed especially for the show.
Organisers said the performances will feature three different stories such as the Arabian tales, Roman Caesar, Alice in Wonderland, and Aladdin, in addition to a live acrobatic show.
The shows run in three instalments: from 6.30pm to 7pm; 7.45pm to 8.15pm, and 9pm to 9.30pm.
Eid gifts will also be presented to children at 7pm and 8.15pm with a daily display of fireworks at 9.30pm to light up the sky, which is expected to enthral visitors.
“Katara is always keen to establish this special celebration during Eid al-Adha festival, noting that the ‘attraction shadow theatre’ combines fun and excitement to bring enjoyment and happiness to families and children despite the economic blockade,” Katara general manager Dr Khalid bin Ibrahim al-Sulaiti said.
“The theatre is an ideal platform to impart knowledge and values to children through interaction, in addition to many elements that make them creative and talented,” he added.
