Why See Broken Wings?
Following the life of Kahlil Gibran
The brand new musical, Broken Wings, is set to have its West End premiere this summer. Witten by Phantom of the Opera's infamous Nadim Naaman alongside composer Dana Al Fardan, Broken Wings is based on the autobiography of Lebanese-born poet Kahlil Gibran.
As the third-highest selling poet of all time, Khalil Gibran is considered to be the Shakespeare of the Middle East. With his words transcending nationalities, politics and geographical borders Gibran's famous humanitarian outlook is now being transformed into a deeply heartfelt new musical.
What is Broken Wings About?
Semi-staged with a nine piece orchestra, the musical follows Gibran, now living in 1920s New York, as he reflects on his life experiences as an 18 year-old in the Middle East. Young Gibran falls in love with the daughter of a family friend, Selma Karamy. When Selma becomes betrothed to another Gibran must fight for her love...
