'Rumi: The Musical': Bringing the Middle East to the West End

published 3 months ago by France 24

Until several years ago, Nadim Naaman, a Lebanese-British actor and singer, was focused on building his career in London's West End. But since then, his ambitions have turned towards celebrating his Middle Eastern heritage. He now brings together the best of the West End and his roots in a way that has not been done before, by putting Middle Eastern stories on the stage in a universally accessible way. He joins us on the show to tell us more about his latest project, "Rumi: The Musical".
