Born in Beirut, Lebanon, in 1989, Omar Rahbany comes from a rich musical lineage, as part of the third generation of the iconic Rahbani family.
Omar developed a fondness for the German concept of ‘Gesamtkunstwerk’ (meaning a total work of art), an idea that only stimulated his burgeoning creativity. At the age of nineteen he wrote and composed his first musical.
To enhance his experience in the realm of music, Omar moved to Barcelona where he studied with conductor Jordi Mora and later to Munich to study with Conductor and musicologist Christopher Schlüren. His most recent project is PASSPORT, a worldly musical album, on which he is the creator and producer. Passport was launched in the Middle East in Beirut, Lebanon (2016) and in the UK, for its international debut, at the Royal Court Theatre (2017).
