Theatre Royal Haymarket

Sandstorm by Dana Al Fardan – Sunday 17th September 7.30pm

Sandstorm by Dana Al Fardan, Performed by The London Metropolitan Orchestra, featuring Special Guest Assala Nasri.


The intriguing, sumptuous sounds of Arabic-influenced world music, brought to life by the world-class élan of the London Metropolitan Orchestra, featuring Special Guest Assala Nasri.


Following a critically acclaimed preview of her work, performed by the Peace and Prosperity Trust at London’s Cadogan Hall last year, Dana Al Fardan presents her latest work, Sandstorm, at the Theatre Royal Haymarket this September. This rare programme of the Qatari composer’s interpretation of contemporary classical music will be performed by the London Metropolitan Orchestra (LMO), conducted by Musical Director, Andy Brown, enriched by a brief narrative setting the scene of the score, and featuring Syrian superstar musician and singer, Assala Nasri.

Sandstorm is the latest album by the Arabic songwriter, composer and symphonic artist, and blends rich strings, choral vocals and soloists with traditional Middle Eastern rhythms. Dana represents the Qatari woman of 2017, proud to present her country’s culture to the world, building its music industry from within the nation, having founded the country’s only record label, DNA Records. She hopes to promote the human face of her people, a nationality whose culture is little known.


The LMO is an ensemble of world-class musicians that has been engaged by all the major Hollywood studios and worldwide record labels for over 20 years. Multi-award winning Syrian singer, Assala Nasri, has enjoyed huge fame in the Middle East during her glittering career spanning 20 years, and is the number one female artist in the Arab world.
On 17th September, the curtain will rise on the orchestra performing a full programme of a unique interpretation of World music for the first time to an international audience for one night only.
