An Artistic Evening

Featuring an Oud (lute) concert, poetry reading and a candle-light dinner at Darat al Funun, Amman’s little house of arts – a complex of historic mansions, ancient caves, the ruins of a Byzantine church and charming terraced gardens perched on a hillside overlooking old Amman. As sunset falls, pigeons fly over the rooftops, and the call to prayer echoes over the hills. Guests stroll among the ancient pillars, rosemary bushes, pomegranate trees, jasmine vines, cedars and palm trees, then view work by contemporary Arab artists in the handsomely renovated galleries.
