Tales of 1,001 Nights

November 17–19
Benaroya Hall

Seattle Symphony

Scheherazade wove her web of tales within tales for 1,001 nights — stories which are wise, witty, bawdy and heroic. The collected Arabian Nights stories inspired Rimsky-Korsakov to compose his epic symphonic poem. Ravel also turned to the tales in his own version for soprano and orchestra.
