Experience Turkish culture and traditions as you’re entertained by the performers in a Turkish Night Show. Enjoy an evening of drinks, appetizers, and dinner as you take in the show at one of Cappadocia’s cave restaurants.
The show begins with a short version of a whirling dervishes performance, which will give you an insight into this religious ceremony. Enjoy the live music performed by musicians in traditional costume. After the dervishes, folk dancers in traditional dress enter, and the dancing begins.
Dancers perform traditional Turkish wedding dances in which the bride, dressed in a beautiful red dress, dances in the middle of the stage, as the groom performs a variety of dances for her.
This is followed by a few folk dances from different parts of Turkey, and then the belly dancer takes the stage. She performs her breathtaking dance and then goes around the room asking men to join her on the stage. The lucky men learn some basic belly dancing moves.
After additional dancing and shows, including the fire dance, the Caucasian dance with knives, and the drum show, the night’s performance comes to an end.
During the show waiters serve unlimited soft and alcoholic drinks with appetizers. The main dinner course of lamb with rice follows. This is the traditional wedding meal in Turkey.
