Production details

Once there lived two brothers. For the good hearted Ali Baba, a poverty stricken wood cutter, life is all toil and hardship. But for the proud Kasim Baba, married to a merchant's daughter and as rich as trees are rich in leaves, life is easy. The two brothers are alike as chalk and cheese. Then, quite by accident, Ali discovers a secret, and from then on life for the two brothers will never be the same again... In a brand new re-telling of this much loved folk tale which forms part of The Thousand and One Nights, the creative team behind The Ugly Duckling and Aesop's Fables bring their imagination and inimitable style to depict a unique and magical world that has its origins firmly rooted in the culture of ancient Persia, India and Arabia. Age 6+
