Gibran Khalil Gibran’s masterpiece “Broken Wings”, a story laden with Gibran’s views on morality, love, marriage, children, pain and loss, has been turned into a musical that premiered at the Theater Royal Haymarket, London, in April 2018, to tremendous success and is showing at the Beiteddine festival this year.

“Broken Wings” is written by Middle Eastern duo Nadim Naaman and Dana Al Fardan, and directed by Bronagh Lagan, with orchestrations by Joe Davison. The events of Broken Wings highlight key issues of the time, yet the themes and debates raised remain increasingly relevant today, over a century later; the fight for gender equality, the freedom to love who we love, tradition versus modernity, wealth versus happiness, immigration and the importance of ‘home’.

“Broken Wings” will be showing at the prestigious Beiteddine festival on July 24, 25 & 26 @ 8:30 pm.
