Dana Al Fardan, critically acclaimed Qatari musician, composer, songwriter, and symphonic artist, and Katara Cultural Village announced the Qatar debut of the West End musical, Broken Wings, co-written and composed by Dana and West End’s very own star Nadim Naaman.

Based on Khalil Gibran’s masterpiece, Broken Wings will be played on November 8-9, 2019, at 2:30 pm and 7:30 pm at the Opera House at Katara Cultural Village, with Matinees and Soiree performances.

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 celebration of the 35th Anniversary of the prestigious Beiteddine Arts Festival.

Along the years, Dana Al Fardan 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 sheds the light on Kahlil Gibran as a person and his evolution. Recently, one of the songs of the musical – “Selma”, was filmed in this prolific writer’s hometown as a tribute to his literary achievements.

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.
