The Magical 1001 Arabian Nights

(Children’s Version)

Fantasy and reality. Excellent literature for children, which allows the understanding of other cultures.

Oriental tales, besides entertaining, teach us and lead us towards the truths of life.

The use of fables within the teaching gives us the possibility to imagine and exercise the creativity of children.

The story of “The Fisherman and the Genius” shows us the capacity that humans have to doubt, even in the face of danger, only for the fact of coveting things.

The Arab Tales were known in Europe at the end of the 18th century, but it is supposed that they were written and adapted by the Arabs between the years 1250 and 1517. These fantastic stories, of anonymous authorship, are a compilation of various stories originating in India, Arabia and Persia (today Iran).

1001 Arabian Nights by Schehrezade

(Adult Version)

DESCRIPTION

The selection of stories of the Thousand and One Nights made and interpreted by Antonia Jaster and directed by Manuel Luis, serve as support to an interpretation full of suggestions and winks. The stories are intertwined in an enveloping way to create a very special atmosphere.

The mixture of what is told, read and interpreted leads us exactly to stories from other cultures, but no less everyday in any other geographical point of view. The use of dance and oriental ritual make interpretation authentic in the treatment of a type of literature closely related to the stories written to be told. It is therefore a show to be seen and heard with the respect of the oriental and the curiosity of the western. A very interesting combination and not without intimacy.

 

SYNOPSIS

It is said that Sultan Shahriar discovers that his wife betrays him and he kills her. Believing that all women are equally infidels he orders his advisor to get him a wife every day, some daughter of his courtiers, and then he would order her to kill her in the morning. This horrible design is broken by Scheherazade, daughter of the advisor. She plans a plan and carries it out: she offers herself as the Sultan’s wife and the first night manages to surprise the king by telling him a story. The Sultan is enthusiastic about the story, but the girl interrupts the story before dawn and promises the end for the next night. So, it continued for a thousand nights.
