Thursday marked the opening of the Zouk Mikael International Festival for this summer. The amazing Bryn Terfel and Monica Yunus gave show-stopping performances on opening night. The two opera singers were accompanied by the local talents of the Lebanese Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Gareth Jones. Guests enjoyed the spectacular concert in the majestic ancient venue, an old Greek amphitheater overlooking the sea just north of Beirut. It was an absolutely beautiful summer night and we can’t wait for more at the Zouk Mikael International Festival.
