After last year's Baalbeck International Festival was disrupted by the shaky security situation in east Lebanon in the wake of the opening concerts, subsequent performances were canceled or moved to the Casino du Liban at the last minute. This year, the festival's staunch supporters will be happy to hear that organizers plan to return to Baalbek. De Freije said the committee hopes to stage the full program of events in Baalbek this year, adding that the area has been calmer since the implementation of the security plan.
