The Arabian Nights


For 1,001 nights Scheherazade uses the power of storytelling to save her own life. Each evening she captivates King Shahryar by spinning tales of love, lust, sorrow and revenge. This collection of Middle Eastern stories is a testament to how the magic of storytelling can transform people, illuminate their minds and redeem their souls. Featuring live music by Tom Teasley.
