​16th Century, In Baghdad. Each night the hard-hearted King Shahrayar takes a bride, only to execute her the next morning. Shahrazad is sentenced to be next, but there is something special about this lady—she is touched with the enchanting gift of storytelling. Rediscover the beauty and humor of these enduring tales in this adaptation told with physicality, puppetry, and a dash of magic.
