Sulin Hasso's melodic narration transports listeners to the twelfth-century Seljuk Empire (Persia) for a sumptuous retelling of ONE THOUSAND AND ONE NIGHTS. When the Malik of Kerman discovers that his first wife has betrayed him, he executes her and his next three young brides. Shaherazade, the daughter of the Malik's vizier, offers to be his fifth wife in a desperate attempt to quench the ruler's madness. Hasso skillfully inhabits the voice of the clever yet cautious Shaherazade as she begins to spin tales to occupy the Malik's mind and reclaim his soul. Hasso makes subtle changes to her tone and style to indicate the stories within stories that make up the rich tapestry of this historically grounded production.
