About Mediterranean Festivals - Moreska

Moreška is a battle dance with swords which, together with the dramatic plot and musical accompaniment, forms a unique, connected whole.

In the last figure, the army of Black King Moro is defeated. As a sign of humility, he falls to the ground and hands King Osman the weapon and the Bula. King Osman frees the Bula from her chains, lifts the veil covering her face and kisses her.
