The 15th Annual Asian Games' Opening CeremoniesNever before had a Middle Eastern country staged anything on this scale. Years of planning and hard work bore fruit in early December as Doha, Qatar hosted the 15th annual Asian Games with an Opening and Closing ceremony befitting the world's top international sporting events.

In a celebration of Qatar, the city of Doha and Arabic culture, Khalifa Stadium was transformed into a spectacle of color and costume that placed Doha firmly on the sporting world's map. The ceremonies were produced by David Atkins Enterprises for DAGOC (Doha Asian Games Organizing Committee).

Fabrice Kebour, who co-handled lighting design duties for the event, said, "The MAC 2000 Wash formed more than 50 percent of the rig. A large number were installed as an arch of light on the top edge of the 150m long LED video screen positioned behind the seating area and proved to be an impressive back light position. Clusters of washes were placed at both the left and right ends of the stadium to create a cross light position." For more information visit www.doha-2006.com and www.martin.com.
