Arabian Nights archiveA cast of eighteen will paint a dazzling array of stories and characters in Dominic Cooke's adaptation of the Arabian Nights. Shahrazad's bewitching tales, which include Ali Baba and Es-Sindibad, celebrate the power of the imagination and storytelling, and will be told through a heady mixture of song, dance, puppetry and illusion. Originally created and performed at the Young Vic in 1998 and followed by a successful tour which included the Edinburgh Festival, Dublin and New York, this version will be expanded and developed specially for the RSC's Courtyard Theatre. Dominic worked on the original tales held in eighteen volumes at the British Library to come up with his adaptation.
