The top 30 photographs are on display at an exhibition in the Education Zone.
Meanwhile, the operetta Land and Sea - a portrayal through music and poetry the link between the people of Bahrain and their
land, sea and animals - was yesterday praised as one of the highlights of BAPS 2010.
Performed for His Majesty King Hamad, as part of the glittering opening ceremony at the Endurance Village, the production
captivated His Majesty and distinguished guests.
Set against a multimedia backdrop, the operetta songs and poetry, written by Ali Shargawi with music composed by Ahmed Al
Harmi, were performed by 150 Bahraini students and 200 ardah dancers and traditional singers. It featured live cows, camels
and falcons, along with a stunning Arabian horse display. The lighting show and animations added to the magical atmosphere
of the operetta.
