The work of Lebanese author Kahlil Gibran - author of The Prophet, The Madman, Sand and Foam, and A Tear and a Smile - was the inspiration for Middle East duo Nadim Naaman and Dana Alfardan to write the first modern musical influenced by the region.
So it's only fitting that following a hugely successful run in London's West End, Broken Wings - the musical inspired by the Kahlil Gibran's 1912 autobiographical novel of the same name - makes its debut in the region at Dubai Opera in January for three uplifting performances.
Our friends at Dubai Opera tell Grazia, “Bringing the West-End musical Broken Wings to Dubai for the first time aims to create a bridge between the East and West by blending the Middle Eastern story with a Western art form. It is also set to bring cultures together and unite people through music and art. This theatrical insight into Kahlil Gibran’s early life transports us back two decades and across continents, to turn-of-the-century Beirut.”
The three performances of Broken Wings will take place on Friday 17 January at 8pm, and Saturday 18 January at 3pm and 8pm. Tickets start from Dhs295 are available online at dubaiopera.com, tickets.virginmegastore.me, dubai.platinumlist.net and dubaicalendar.ae, and to purchase in person at Virgin Megastore, the Dubai Opera Box Office, and At The Top at Burj Khalifa.
See you on opening night, Grazia girls!
