On 16/03/2017 it was a night filled with anticipation and expectation. In Lebanon you can only expect perfection when it comes to Caracalla, this brilliant mind of Abdel-Halim Caracalla and his magnificent crew and selection of cast and dancers brought to life a masterpiece proud to say made in Lebanon. What really struck as brilliant and quite unique for a theatrical show the extent usage of cinematic imagery and quite effective and to the benefit of the show. The experience as if you are watching a movie for Akira Kurosawa where dreams become reality. As for bad experiences at the location of the show " Forum De Beirut" in Lebanon, there will always be issues like parking a couple of miles away or the really annoying seating and some people can't see the tall ones in front. Well, this might be true but when you experience the majestic of Caracalla you forget about such petty problems. In brief I will provide my opinion on this epic theatrical story.
