  • Description

    Baalbeck was a pagan religious center before the Phoenicians took it over and built a temple to their god Baal. Later the Greeks captured it and called it Heliopolis. Roman emperor Augustus made it a Roman colony and built temples more grandiose than those in Rome itself.

    The Baalbeck Festival program will later feature the N.Y. Philharmonic Orchestra (Aug. 8-9), Theater Montparnasse of Paris, Ballets Rambert of London (18-23 Aug.) and Lebanese Folklore (end of Aug.)
