The Lebanon Pavilion will put on dancing performances by the Caracalla Dance Theatre tonight in celebration of its National Pavilion Day.

The show at the Red Hall of the Expo Center tonight will include highlights of the "Two Thousand and One Nights" and "Knights of the Moon."

Lebanon is an ancient civilization, whose history dates back thousands of years, and it boasts rich and diverse culture legacies. The country hopes to showcase its glorious past as well as its promising future at the Expo, Mohamad Safadi, Lebanon's Minister of Economy and Trade, said at this morning's ceremony at the Expo Center.

Liu Zhentang, China's deputy commissioner general for World Expo 2010, said Sino-Lebanese cooperation in political, economic and trade as well as cultural fields has been strengthened since diplomatic ties were established in 1971. He believed the Expo would help visitors worldwide touch upon the splendor of Lebanon.

Located in Zone A alongside Guozhan Road, the pavilion has the theme "Tell-Tale Cities" and highlights the country's customs, natural scenery and historic monuments.

The pavilion showcases the Phoenician alphabet, which became the foundation for Hebrew, Greek and Latin, on the Axileimu king sarcophagus.

Also check out Lebanon's natural wonder, Jeita Grotto, one of the most impressive underground caverns in the world, through multimedia displays.

Visitors will also be able to sample Lebanese food and purchase some handicrafts.
