A special music video has been released in support of The British Red Cross’ Beirut Emergency Appeal.
A host of musical performers have come together to help raise funds with a performance of songs from new musical Broken Wings written by Nadim Naaman and Dana Al Fardan with orchestrations from Joe Davison.
The fundraiser is helping to support those who have been left devastated by the August 4 explosion in Lebanon’s capital city.
The music video, which also features the Lebanese Philharmonic Orchestra in Beirut, is raising funds for The British Red Cross’ Beirut Emergency Appeal. You can donate online here.
Naaman said: “Watching events in Lebanon unfold over the last year has been extremely difficult. The tragedy of August 4th came on top of financial collapse, political malaise and the impact of Covid-19.
“This time last year, we had just performed Broken Wings in Beirut, and the world was a very different place. It is a musical about Lebanon, about The Lebanese, and we simply had to come together to help in some way.”
Those featured in the video are Eva-Theresa Chokarian, Joseph Claus, Nadeem Crowe, Melissa Dano, Nikki Davison, Hiba Elchikhe, Soophia Foroughi, Fenton Gray, Rob Houchen, Irvine Iqbal, Hanna Khogali, Adam Linstead, Johan Munir, Nadim Naaman, Benjamin Purkiss, Lauren James Ray, Mia Richards, Jeremy Secomb, Jake Stewart, Aliza Vakil and Bethany Weaver.
It was filmed in London’s Southwark Playhouse with video production by The Barn Theatre, Cirencester, who all donated their time, staff and space to the cause.
