At the entrance to the #WeDreamLebanon festival venue Thursday, heavily armed police lined up beside an ironclad truck parked on the Beirut Waterfront.Thursday was the opening of the weeklong festival, which features street food, Formula 1 races, supercar and motocross shows, an "Arabian Night" performance with superstar entertainers Ragheb Alama and Sherine Abdel-Wahab and a "multimedia show," which opened the event.All of this is meant to create a festival experience the likes of which Lebanon has never seen before, according to Jarmakani.On the stage's expansive backdrop, images of a cityscape in ruins appeared.In the water surrounding the stage, a fountain jetted upward, creating a screen of water. The show was characterized by the wide range of effects used: Dancers performed along with a cacophony of music blasting from speakers and impressive 3-D projections.The irregular shape of the backdrop made it so the projection of buildings produced the effect of being in a city.
