Eva asked me in 2016, “What about the Sheherazade project?”  and Eva asked me in 2017, “What about the Sheherazade Project?” We are busy with rehearsals for Sheherazade Retold!  (Thank you Eva for the multi-prompting!)

 

Set against the background of the evocative music of Maurice Raval and the bravura words of Tristan Klingsor,
comes the story of “Scheherazade Retold”.

Not just a fascination with the oriental and exotic culture, it is a story of forbearance, enlightenment and heroism.
