The Turkish Night Show highlights the dance traditions of various regions of Turkey, complete with traditional costumes and of course, exhilarating belly dancers. This lively performance is a great way to enjoy traditional Turkish music, dancing and join in the festivities during audience participation.
The rate of the Turkish Night is 25 Euro per person including drinks and fruits or 30 Euro per person including drinks, fruits and dinner. Both of the rates also include transfer between hotel and restaurant. We will pick you up at your hotel at 20:00 (winter) or 20:30 (summer) and drive 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.
After some other dances and shows like fire dance, Caucasian dance with knives and drum show, the night ends around 23:30 when we drive you back to your hotel for a deep sleep.
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.
