The name of the poet Nizar Qabbani was enough to mobilize a large audience of different generations at the Syrian Opera House, which celebrated the centenary of his birth through an artistic evening of the Syrian National Ensemble for Arabic Music led by Maestro Adnan Fathallah.

On a date with the beautiful memories of the words that did not become obsolete with the passage of many years, the authentic young Syrian voices of Linda Bitar - Khaldoun Hinnawi - Sylvie Suleiman - Ramah Shelghin - Diana Al-Saeed harmonized to restore the living pulse of words stronger than forgetfulness with which Nizar Qabbani etched his mark on the forehead of time, forming a living legacy of authentic Damascene poetry that touches the heart, soul and conscience.

From the school of love to the cup reader to the Damascene mawwal, the clock has returned to the opera house's audience to a space of a beautiful time dyed by Nizar's words in the color of love and honesty.

The young Syrian voices who confronted lyrics sung by the giants of art in the good old days were able to prove a strong presence that made the audience of the opera house interact with the melody and words and thirst for more creativity.

It is noteworthy that the great poet Nizar Qabbani was born in Damascus on March 21, 1923, and his creativity continued until he was absent from our world on April 30, 1998, leaving behind hundreds of wonderful poems that represent an icon of Arab romance.
