The Arabian Nights or A Thousand and One Nights has influenced world literature and enthralled readers for centuries. Its legend tells us that the beautiful Sheherezade prevented her own murder at the hands of a sultan by telling him a never-ending tale of adventure. This classic from the Middle East introduced us to Aladdin, Sinbad, and Ali Baba. This absorbing program from Ancient Mysteries examines the origins, impact, and mystery of this seminal work of literature.
