"Al-Fawanees" Musical

Fifteen years after the production of the musical “Al-Fawanees” in 2004 by the National Conservatory of Music, the Yabous Cultural Centre chose to reproduce this remarkable work in July 2019 with permission and in cooperation with National Conservatory of Music.

 "Al-Fawanees" is based on the story of "The Little Lantern” by Palestinian Writer Ghassan Kanafani. The music is by Suhail Khoury, and the script was adapted for the musical by Wasim al -Kurdi, and directed by Fernando Nopi and Edward Muallem.

40 young people from Jerusalem, ages 8 to 18, are participating in the musical as singers, and an orchestra of 32 musicians from the National Conservatory of Music will accompany the musical.
