Synopsis: Mary Zimmerman's acclaimed adaptation weaves ancient tales of wonder into a rich and poetic testament to the transformational power of storytelling. King Shahryar marries, loves, then kills a young woman each night – until he encounters Scheherezade. For one thousand and one nights, he delays her murder as he eagerly awaits her next tale of love, lust, hilarity, or sorrow.
