Arabian Nights

Arabian Nights (2000) NR 175 minutes  Believing all women are treacherous murderers, the crazy sultan vows to behead his new wife before she can do the same to him. His bride, Scheherezade, saves her life and brings him back to sanity by telling him a captivating series of tales. This is a lush and beautiful production that is well worth the 3 hours of your life. Plus John Leguizamo is wonderful as both genies, so what’s not to like?  It got me curious to hear Rimsky-Korsakov’s “Scheherazade” while the tales were fresh in my mind. I found it at YouTube and am listening as I work.
