In Turkiye we have many 2000 years old amphitheaters  where concerts and ballet shows take place .
Last night we celebrated Verdi's 200th birthday at a recently built amphitheater by listening to the pieces from Verdi's operas .

 Besides the choir there was a soprano

                                                 and a tenor
The solists dancing

Towards the end of the concert the moon also joined .
