Major theater production: “Fantasia Opus3”

May 3–6 and 10–13

Gulbenkian Theatre, Beirut campus

Performances will take place on May 3, 4, 5, 6 and 10, 11, 12, 13, 2012 at 8:30 p.m.

Fantasia Opus3 is a collective creation adapted and directed by Lina Abyad.

The performance is in Arabic.


It is an invitation to revisit for the last time, under the impromptu tent of a dreaming, mischievous and witty brother and sister.
A show to bring back childhood memories of school, punishments, notes from teachers, birthday treats and eerie fairytales.
A show to gently deride parents, their sermons and minor anxieties.
A show to tentatively evoke an erstwhile Beirut.
A fantasy to talk about oneself, puppy love, teenage reveries and adult desires.
A sweet fantasy, nostalgic, joyful and malicious.
An all-color fantasy!
