NEWS/Romeo Lahoud Walking "The Sun Road"

After so many years away from the most-loved place to his heart, the theater, Romeo Lahoud is back to his art-hunger audience with his new musical play "Tarik Al Shams" or "The Sun Road." The message out of this play is to go back to our legacy, our Folk music, the "Dabke" dance and the patriotism that is fading down these days .

Many times, the launching of Romeo Lahoud's play had been delayed, as well as the songstress Aline Lahoud had been switched by the Lebanese singer Mikaella. But the prominent Lebanese artist Romeo Lahoud insisted on pursuing his dream for a simple reason that his wife made him promise her that he will get back to the theater before she passed away few years ago. Since then, he started to prepare for "The Sun Road" to make his wife's dream come true.

The play tells the story of the countries that occupied Lebanon for fifteen years and at the end left this country to meet their fate, and Lebanon stood strong forever. Romeo Lahoud who always believed in his beloved country Lebanon, is one of the few artists left that insist on the Lebanese original classical music and Folk songs.

Romeo Lahoud said in an interview with media press that he aims to touch the soul of the Lebanese and Arab youth to show them that great art is still present. They have to fight for their legacy and to believe in the beauty of Lebanese traditional music that made the name of their country rise with Fairuz, Wadih El Safi and Sabah, for example.

The show started in 19th of February in Casino Du Liban and will remain there as much as people will come to witness this marvelous and magical Folk experience. Of course, a great team is behind the success of the show, such as Papou Lahoud, the fashion designer who made the costumes and dresses for the play, and the director and actor Jihad Al Andary.

The come-back of Romeo Lahoud after the death of the diva Salwa El Katrib, his relative, and loosing his wife, meant a lot for the lovers of traditional Lebanese art which was once the most important and the most productive in the Arab World.

Let us protect our legacy and enjoy the new play of Romeo Lahoud, "The Sun Road" at Casino Du Liban!
