Katara Eid extravaganza: musical shows, fireworks and gifts

Katara – the Cultural Village is all set to celebrate Eid al-Fitr with a four-day ‘exclusive and full-pledged programme of fun and excitement.’

A musical under the theme “A Child’s Dream” will be staged at the Katara esplanade with three-daily performances in Arabic and English.

The musical will bring together the arts of acrobatics, circus, clowns, and pantomime and ribbons dancers on a special stage, equipped with cutting-edge lighting and sounds systems.

“It is one of Katara’s known traditions now that we culminate our Ramadan Festival with Eid al-Fitr extravaganza and festive season,” Katara general manager Dr Khalid bin Ibrahim al-Sulaiti said.

The first show will be in Arabic, scheduled to start at 7pm while the second show will be in English and begins at 8.30pm daily, followed by the third show in Arabic at 9.30pm.

Eid gifts will also be presented to children at 6.45pm and 9pm with a dazzling display of fireworks will follow to light up the sky at night, which is expected to enthrall visitors.
