Ramin Karimloo and Nadim Naaman are to star in the semi-staged premiere of new musical concert Rumi: The Musical at the London Coliseum which will play for two performances  on 23 and 24 November 2021.

Co-composed by Dana Al Fardan and Naaman and directed by Bronagh Lagan, the show has orchestrations and arrangements by Joe Davison, with vocal arrangements by Nikki Davison, choreography by Anjali Mehra, Middle Eastern musical supervision by Maias Aylamani.

Full casting and the full creative team will be announced soon, with the company set to star Ramin Karimloo (as Shams Tabrizi) and Naaman (Rumi), alongside Casey Al-Shaqsy (Kimya) and Soophia Foroughi (Kara), as well as an orchestra with at least 25 players.
