Majnun & Leyla is an intercultural opera project from World Opera Lab in collaboration with the Amsterdam Andalusian Orchestra, performed in the summer of 2016 open air at Mercatorplein. Leyla and Majnun is a tragic love story, famous from New Delhi to Rabat. In this story the main character goes insane because of missing his lover. Artists have been inspired by this beautiful story for centuries, and many regional versions of the story exist. World Opera Lab made a new interpretation of the story with artists and musicians from various traditions: from traditional Turkish music to European baroque opera and mystical Arabian/Andalusian songs.
