Broken Wings

Starting from AED 249

What was the inspiration behind The Prophet’s author Khalil Gibran’s choice to start writing? What led him to such enlightened philosophical thoughts later in his life?

An autobiographical account of Khalil Gibran’s first love, Broken Wings is a touching new musical adaptation of the exemplary poet’s 1912 masterwork.

New York, 1923: A quite aged Gibran recounts from a cold studio room. Through his poetry and music, he takes us down the memory lane back to two decades and across continents to old Beirut. At the age of 18, he returns to the Middle East after 5 years in America, to complete his education and gain more knowledge about his culture. He falls madly in love with Selma Karamy, who is the daughter of Khalil’s family friend and a very successful businessman, Farris Karamy. However, Selma is pledged to Mansour Bey Galib, nephew of the powerful Bishop Bulos Galib, who wishes to inherit the Karamy family fortune. Selma and Gibran fight to reunite, while they are challenged by the rules, traditions, and customs that their society sets before them.

The events of Broken Wings emphasize the major issues faced by the people at that time yet the debates and the matters raised are extremely prevalent at this time; fight for gender equality, freedom to choose our own lover, traditionalism vs modernism, happiness vs money, the longing for ‘home’.
It is written by Middle Eastern duo Nadim Naaman and Dana Al Fardan and directed by Bronagh Lagan, produced by Ali Matar with orchestrations by Joe Davison.
“Naaman and Al Fardan succeed in presenting a vibrant and beautiful music.” (BBC ARABIC)
