Twenty-five London-based artists representing about 15 different nationalities from across the Middle East, Asia, Europe and Australia will bring to life for the first time on Doha to stage West End Musical’s ‘Broken Wings’, written by acclaimed Qatari musician Dana al Fardan together with West End’s very own star Nadin Naaman from November 7 to 9 at Katara Opera House.
An adaptation of Kahlil Gibran’s 1912 autobiographical poetic novel of the same title, 'Broken Wings' was first performed in London in August 2018 at Theatre Royal Haymarket to sold-out shows. The musical was also recently performed in Lebanon in July, in connection with the celebration of the 35th anniversary of the prestigious Beiteddine Arts Festival.
Broken Wings is a story that highlights importance of Kahlil Gibran’s philosophies and messages of tolerance, humanitarianism and equality against the backdrop of a divided modern world.
Along the years, Dana Alfardan has gained international recognition for her Arab-influenced contemporary music. Being an iconic Qatari musician and businesswoman, she is now the cultural ambassador of the Qatar Philharmonic Orchestra and the official composer of Qatar Airways.
'Broken Wings' cast is led by co-writer Nadim Naaman as Gibran, Hanna Qureshi as Selma, and Soophia Foroughi (Spamalot) as Mother. Further casting will be announced soon. The musical is directed by Bronagh Lagan, with orchestration by Joe Davison, and produced by Ali Matar. The musical is coming to Doha in association with Katara, Broken Wings’ cultural partner, Qatar Airways, Mondrian Doha, Qatar Foundation and Qatar Philharmonic Orchestra.
‘Broken Wings' will be played for three days from November 7 to 9 at the Opera House at Katara Cultural Village, with Matinees and Soiree performances.
