Convinced of the falsehood and infidelity of all women, Sultan Shakriar has sworn an oath to take a new wife every day and have her executed the next morning. The lovely Sheherazade postpones her fate by spinning miraculous stories, fairy-tales and accounts of strange adventures for 1,001 nights. Join is for an evening of drama... suspense... and some of the most dazzling and colorful music ever written for orchestra, Scheherazade transports listeners to the exotic world of the Arabian Nights.
