A Thousand and One Nights


Fikret Amirov


Eldar Aliev


Patricia Barnes, contributing dance critic with Dance Magazine, called this “a splendid new work.” A visually stunning ballet, it was listed as “a major dance event” in the 1998 A&E Entertainment Almanac. Accompanied by an expansive original score, Mr. Aliev’s choreography evokes poetic charm creating lush visual imagery in every scene. The Arabian tales have never been told with such dramatic flair. There’s even a flying carpet! Your audience will agree – this is theater at its best!
