In case you have missed it, Min Beirut… bil 3arabe has an elections special: short clips from various Rahbani plays.

Though the Rahbani’s are mostly remembered as blue-eyed (or, alternatively, cynical), dream weavers of a non-existent (Christian) Lebanon, there is a sharper side to them. Some of this sharpness comes out in these Min Beirut clips. The second clip from Lulu, with its liturgical twist towards the end, is particularly delightful.
