Night Spectacular Sound & Light Show

Night Spectacular Sound & Light Show

|45 minutes
Kids Friendly
Watch the walls of the Citadel become the stage for a nighttime show celebrating Jerusalem's 4,000-year-old history through sights and sounds.

Amidst the archaeological remains in the Citadel's courtyard and to the sound of original music, virtual reality images tell the stories of King David, the Roman conquest, Muhammad, the Crusaders, and Suleiman the Magnificent, among other people and periods.

The Night Spectacular, a 45-minute show, uses trompe l'oeil technology---the stones of the walls and structures fade into the scenes and the screened images envelop the viewers, whisking them off to a one-of-a-kind multi-sensory experience.

Innovative techniques and a sophisticated computer system operate 20 projectors, 10 video players, 14 computers and 14 loudspeakers.

The Night Spectacular is the first of its kind and is for everyone---tourists, families, speakers of all languages and for all who love Jerusalem.
