The Arabian Nights
November 15 - November 18, 2012
Adapted by Mary Zimmerman from the ancient Arabic tales. Each night for one thousand and one nights, the maiden Scheherezade forestalls her own execution by mesmerizing King Shahryar with a new story of love, honor, deception, or revenge. In the process, she imparts to him -- and to the audience -- a lesson in listening and in humanity. Sumptuous music, dance, and design promise to make this an epic theatrical feast. Adapted by Mary Zimmerman from the ancient Arabic tales. Directed by John Houchin.
