The evening featured a trio of solo vocalists – Yasmina al-Alwani, Yasmine Reza and Sara al-Husseini – performing to the accompaniment of the Lebanese National Oriental Orchestra, under the baton of Selim Sahab.The crowd let out a loud cheer when the orchestra's strings began to bow the opening tune of "Alf Leila wa Leila".Rousing audience members into a trance-like state with her opening "Ya Habibi," Alwani's voice got audience members clapping along to the durbake.After a brief intermission maestro Sahab returned to the stage, escorting Egyptian vocalist Sara al-Husseini. To the mellifluous melodies of the orchestra, the vocalist lulled audience members into an enchanted daze with her resonating rendition of "Darit al-Ayam". Following Husseini's encore, Alwani and Reza returned to the stage.
