A giant genie, princesses and wizards abound in the marvelous tales of Scheherazade, the storyteller heroine of "Aladdin and Other Enchanting Tales." She tells her stories of Aladdin and a genie's lamp, Sinbad and the enchanted bird, and Ali Baba outwitting the thieves. Set to the music of Rimsky-Korsakov, with stunning costumes, masks, puppets, illusion and pantomime, Scheherazade will captivate audience members' hearts with humor, magic, romance and adventure.
Ideal for school groups and families (recommended for ages 5 and up), these classic stories take the audience on a journey into the wondrous world of "Aladdin and Other Enchanting Tales."
A downloadable study guide is available at www.artpark.net to bring the fun into the classroom before and after attending the performance.
