Arabesque Opens at the Kennedy Center

“Arabesque: Arts of the Arab World” opened at the Kennedy Center in Washington on Monday. Here’s the first in a series of broadcast reports, which aired Monday evening on the NewsHour with Jim Lehrer. It’s a good scene-setter with interviews with some of the aritists, Kennedy Center President Michael Kaiser and Alicia Adams, the Kennedy Center’s head of international programming.
