From the depths of misfortune to the heights of glory, Sinbad the Sailor shares his exotic tales of adventure.
Shipwrecked, Sinbad exhausts his wits as he encounters strange kingdoms, deserted islands, one-eyed ogres, giant
birds, sea monsters, and a valley of glittering diamonds guarded by serpents. Elegant, graceful and richly
colored shadow puppets fly across the stage. A cascade of live music from the santoor (Persian & Arabic
dulcimer) and darbuka (hand drum) and an array of sound effects weave a spell as humor, enchantment and
suspense thrill audiences in this magnificent and beloved story from the Arabian Nights.
