Scheherazade, the best known and beloved work of Rimski-Korsakov, is based on the stories of Scheherazade from the book 'tales from one thousand and one nights'.
The Sultan has been deceived in love. Out of vengeance he decides to marry another woman every evening and kill her the next morning. The ravishing Scheherazade escapes her fate by bewitching the Sultan with the ultimate form of seductive art. She tells stories that make the Sultan so curious that he wants to hear another story the next night and postpones her execution until he finally decides to put it off altogether.
Midsummer is the perfect moment to bring to life the tales of one thousand and one nights. Festival Classique presents a unique and surprising cooperation between Karima el Fillali and the Residentie Orchestra conducted by chief conductor Nicholas Collon. The appealing music of Rimski-Korsakov takes you along in the tales of the development of the love between the Sultan and Scheherazade. The colourful orchestration and the Oriental atmosphere are strengthened by beautiful Arabic songs. Bewitching video mapping on the walls and the ceiling of the Kurzaal make the performance complete.
