Doha, Qatar – 22 September 2021: Dana Al Fardan, one of the Middle East’s leading contemporary composers, and West End star Nadim Naaman today announce that their second major stage musical, ‘Rumi: The Musical’ will get its world premiere at the London Coliseum in  November 2021.

‘Rumi’, based on a story about the 13th century philosopher and poet Rumi by Evren Sharma, follows Al Fardan and Naaman’s 2018 debut ‘Broken Wings’, which premiered in the West End at the Theatre Royal Haymarket before touring the Middle East.

‘Rumi: The Musical’ will premiere as a semi-staged concert at the London Coliseum on November 23 & 24. The live premiere follows the release of a full-length concept album on Broadway Records.

Led by Ramin Karimloo (as Shams Tabrizi) and Nadim Naaman (Rumi), Casey Al-Shaqsy (Kimya), Soophia Foroughi (Kara), the London Coliseum cast will comprise entirely of performers of Middle Eastern, North African and South Asian heritage, and will also feature a 25+ piece orchestra, conducted by Joe Davison.

‘Rumi: The Musical’ features a grand score which combines Middle Eastern authenticity with classical influences and contemporary musical theatre, with lyrics derived from Rumi’s poetry; Orchestrated and Arranged by Joe Davison, with Vocal Arrangements by Nikki Davison.

Tickets will go on sale on Tuesday 14 September via the London Coliseum website

Dana Al Fardan said: “Writing ‘Rumi’ felt like a blessing, during a period of so much upheaval in the world. The show’s 
emphasis is on looking within ourselves, and accessing the abundant sphere of creative force which shapes our 
conception of reality. It has been such a healing journey and I can’t wait to share our show with audiences at The London Coliseum.” 

Nadim Naaman said: ““We were so thrilled with the response to the release of the Rumi concept album earlier this year, and to its unique qualities as a piece of theatre. I am so grateful that we now have live performances to look forward to, particularly after the challenges we have all faced as an industry in the recent past. We are hugely grateful to everyone at English National Opera for welcoming Rumi onto the majestic stage of The London Coliseum.”

Produced by Ali Matar, ‘Rumi’ will be directed by Bronagh Lagan, with choreography by Anjali Mehra and Middle Eastern Musical Supervision by Maias Alyamani. Full Casting and the full creative team will be announced soon.
