And the nights over Bagdad were whiter than the days; the nights over Bagdad were white…
Mary Zimmerman’s award winning adaptation weaves tales of wonder into a poetic testament to the transformational power of storytelling. King Shahryar marries, loves, and then kills a young woman each night – until he encounters Scheherazade. For one thousand and one nights, he delays her murder as he eagerly awaits her next tale of love, betrayal, courage, ingenuity, human folly and physical sensuality.
