WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Bringing the world's greatest folk stories to dazzling life, this erotic, stunning retelling of One Thousand and One Nights is a two-part epic theatrical event. Shahrazad's breathtaking, never-ending tales are realized and performed in this US premiere by a truly international company of actors, musicians and designers from across the Arabic-speaking world--from the North African countries of Algeria and Morocco to Egypt and across the Mediterranean to Lebanon, Jordan and Iraq. Marking Tim Supple's return to CST's World's Stage following his enchanting Indian A Midsummer Night's Dream, the production is presented with projected English translation.
