AN OPERA BY TARIK BENOUARKA
El Nafas,The Breath, is a full-scale opera, an original classical music work, written to be sung in literary, poetic Arabic.
Both poet and composer, Tarik Benouarka, the creator of the opera, draws the inspiration for this unique emblem of his artistic universe from his eastern and western roots; the melodic accents of two worlds join in perfect harmony.
El Nafas is a symphonic merging of Arabian canto alto, its poetry and the profoundness of classical orchestra, personified in this
“Desert Symphony”, a lyrical ode to humanist and universal themes.
