Mon, 26 Feb 2018


THE 2018 Spring of Culture’s inaugural event, a live performance of prominent French-Syrian musician Abed Azrié’s The Epic of Gilgamesh, took place at a sold-out Bahrain National Theatre last night. Azrié, who wrote the libretto and composed the music, performed in front of the capacity crowd along with French conductor Alain Joutard and a trio of musical ensembles: Lebanon’s Notre Dame University Choir led by Father Khalil Rahmeh, France’s String Ensemble of Paris and Bahrain’s own Mohammed bin Faris Band.
