Readings from 1001 nights and Scherazade with music from Persia and the orient

A magical concert for children and their adults alike, filled with the mystery and colour and excitement of Persia and the Orient. We re-tell stories first told by Scheherazade in the 1001 Nights, and the fabulously talented musicians of OCMF will improvise a live, dramatic, surprising soundtrack, using Western and Eastern instruments, before your very eyes and ears! 

Duration: 1:00 with no interval
