Turkish Night

Turkish Night

The Turkish Night Show is a colourful and exhilarating experience enjoyed by all with highlights of the dance traditions of various regions of Turkey. The traditional costumes are exquisite, performances exciting and of course, there are wonderful belly dancers topping the bill. This lively performance is a great way to enjoy traditional Turkish music, folklore, dancing and join in the festivities with plenty of audience participation.


We will pick you up at your hotel at around 20:00 and transfer you to one of the cave restaurants where the show is performed nightly.

The show begins with a short, 10 minute sample of Whirling Dervishes Ceremony. However, for the real religious ceremony we suggest our Whirling Dervishes Ceremony in the 13th century caravanserai performance.  Following the Dervish performance, the Turkish folk dancers enter and the show begins!

Dancers, including the bride and groom, perform the traditional way in which a girl gets married in Turkey. The bride dressed in a beautiful red dress dances in the middle and the groom arrives to put on different shows for her. He first shows how handsome he is, and then how strong he is and finally how rich he is. After rejecting all these shows one by one, the bride accepts to get married with him when the groom tells that his heart beats for her. While they are starting their wedding dance, all the guests are invited to dance with them, as well.

After a couple of other folk dances from different parts of Turkey, the highlight of the night comes: Belly Dancer! She makes her breath-taking dance and then goes around all the tables to take one man from each table. The men have a great time while they are learning the secrets of belly-dancing with some basic movements.

 

During the night the waiters will serve unlimited soft and alcoholic drinks with appetizers. The main course will be lamb with rice, the traditional wedding meal of Turkey.  

After the show finishes, our driver will drop you off at the hotel around 23:00.
