An autobiographical account of Kahlil Gibran’s first love, Broken Wings is a musical adaptation of the iconic poet’s 1912 masterpiece.

The musical begins in New York City in 1923 where an ageing Gibran narrates from his cold studio. Using poetry and music, the audience are transported two decades into the past and across continents to Beirut at the turn of the century. An eighteen-year-old Gibran returns to the Middle East after five years in America. He returns to complete his education and discover more about his heritage and doesn’t plan on falling in love but when he meets Selma Karamy, he falls deeply. However, Selma is soon after betrothed to Mansour Bey Galib, nephew of Bishop Bulos Galib, who has an eye firm upon the Karamy family fortune. Gibran and Selma fight for their love, which in turn means having to navigate through the rules, traditions and expectations of their society.

Broken Wings has a book by Kahlil Gibran, with music and lyrics by Nadim Naaman and Dana Al Fardan. The production is directed by Bronagh Lagan, has orchestrations by Joe Davison and is produced by Ali Matar.
