No storyteller is more renowned than the legendary Scheherazade, whose extraordinary skill in the art of storytelling kept her royal husband enthralled for 1,000 nights, thereby saving her own life. MDTC delights in bringing the magic of these tales to the stage in a unique signature style incorporating dance and story-telling narrative. Four tales are presented in the production.

The Fisherman and the Djinni tells of an unsuspecting fisherman who uncorks a brass bottle and releases a djinni bent on revenge.
