CNNi Inside the Louvre Abu DhabiInside the Louvre Abu Dhabi

When the Louvre Abu Dhabi finally opens its doors on November 11th, it will be the culmination of 10 years work and the fulfilment of the UAE’s lofty cultural ambitions. The spectacular building is the vision of award-winning architect Jean Nouvel. Its centerpiece, a dome made out of 7,850 unique stars, creates a ‘rain of light’ that dances across the museum interior.

Louvre Abu Dhabi boasts more than 600 artworks, spanning a myriad of cultures and periods, including 300 masterpieces on loan from other institutions, including famous works from masters such as Leonardo da Vinci, Henri Matisse and Edouard Manet. Through this half-hour special, we tell the intimate story of the creation of the Louvre Abu Dhabi and take viewers inside the museum for the first time.

CNNi Culinary JourneysCulinary Journeys

In this special edition of CNN’s Culinary Journeys, we travel to New Orleans, Louisiana, as the city prepares for one of the biggest celebrations of the year: the Jazz Festival. New Orleans is the birthplace of jazz but the city’s charms go beyond the music-filled streets of the old French Quarter; its history at the crossroads of French, Spanish and African cultures is also reflected in its cuisine. From gumbo to turtle soup and from shaved catfish to po’boy, there’s no shortage of flavors in the culinary landscape of the Big Easy. Our guide on this journey is celebrity chef and author John Besh. With several restaurants and accolades under his belt, Besh is the Louisiana homeboy whose dishes celebrate the bounty and traditions of his region. Chef Besh takes us through the sights, sounds and flavors of Jazz Fest, which once a year celebrates the food and music of Louisiana.

Will pollution choke industrial powerhouses, and inequality wrack communities? The challenges are daunting, but as we’ll discover in CNN’s Innovative Cities, people designed these problems and people can innovate their way out of them. In this 30-minute program, CNN profiles the cutting-edge projects that are combating the pressures on modern cities as they grow at rapid rates.
