Tales and Dance of Scheherazade
Meet the clever and mysterious Scheherazade as she invites the audience on a journey
into her world of storytelling and Middle Eastern Dance. Tales both well-known and
obscure to Westerners such as Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves, Rescuing the Moon, and
the Anklet are brought to life through movement, dance, and spoken word.

Moquette Volante – Interactive
Two Middle Eastern dancers add depth to the tales of Arabian Nights and other Middle
Eastern Folklore. As Scheherazade spins her web of storytelling, audience members are
invited into the tales as non-dancing characters, allowing them to have a moment of
fame as well as entertain friends and family who watch them.

Moquette Volante – Enhanced
Live music adds even more flavor to the Arabian Nights experience.
