Arabian Nights   Main House

Adapted by Dominic Cooke

ShahrazadOnce there was a strong, brave king who loved to laugh, but one day he was betrayed by his wicked wife and he lost all his trust of women.  The good king of old was replaced by a cruel and merciless tyrant , whose soul was possessed by a dark demon.

Now the King's Vizier had two daughters and the elder was blessed with a magic power.  Fate had decreed that she use her magic power so slay the dark demon in the King's soul.  Her name was Shahrazad and her magic was the magic of stories...
