Rumi: The Musical

musical

RUMI: THE MUSICAL comes to the London Coliseum for two nights only.

The legacy of 13th century philosopher and poet Rumi has touched millions around the world and continues to make an impact in its universality and utilitarian nature; a legacy which has lasted eight centuries and has inspired all nationalities, ages, faiths and backgrounds. But how did it all begin?

RUMI: THE MUSICAL examines the transformative and powerful relationship between Rumi and his mentor Shams Tabrizi, and how this extraordinary friendship, integral to Rumi’s development as both thinker and writer, impacted the lives of Rumi’s family, friends and followers, contextualising many of his popular words and works.

Written by Dana Al Fardan and Nadim Naaman, Rumi: The Musical is based on a Story by Evren Sharma, with Orchestrations and Arrangements by Joe Davison and Vocal Arrangements by Nikki Davison.

The Score is inspired by the global scale of Rumi’s outreach and influence, which has always broken cultural borders and resonated with hearts and minds across Continents; combining Middle Eastern authenticity with Classical influences and Contemporary Musical Theatre, with Lyrics derived from Rumi’s poetry.

The Book is driven by the beauty of Rumi’s philosophy, highlighting timeless human values, yet crucially asking challenging questions of cultural tradition, gender equality and the heavy price of success and fame on loved ones.
