BE TRANSPORTED TO ANOTHER TIME, ANOTHER PLACE.
The stories of 1001 Nights resonate down through the ages and across vast oceans, whispering the promise of adventure and romance from their ancient roots among the shifting sands to the bedside of every child.
In an evening of riveting storytelling, the evocative music of Pezhvak, an ensemble of traditional Persian and Middle Eastern musicians, is woven together with Zen Zen Zo’s legendary physicality and the text of these enchanting stories.
The hauntingly beautiful sounds of the ney, the oud, dohol and the kamanche summon sumptuous images of the stars over sand, enriching the well-known tales of Aladdin, Ali Baba, Sinbad and more.
This magical production is set to delight and charm the whole family.
