A Persian love poem that originated in ancient Arabia, Layla and Majnun is a timeless story of tragic love between two young people who are not allowed to unite. Uzeyir Hajibelyi’s powerful music — at once profoundly sorrowful and ecstatic — provides the perfect backdrop to the story that Lord Byron called “the Romeo and Juliet of the East.”
