The story of Scheherazade is a tale of passion and danger, love and betrayal. At its heart is one of the bravest women in mythology – who saved the life of every woman in the land by telling magical stories to a cruel king who, blinded by jealousy, had vowed to marry a new bride every day, take her to his bed and then in the morning execute her.

We promise thrilling dancing, rich costuming and powerful music. We’ll take you on an exciting, exotic journey and leave you with potent images of ancient times when a brave and resourceful young woman really could save the world by telling stories.

We’ll be using our unique blend of middle eastern and western dance, plus the exciting use of fire, silk and swords, to take you on an exciting, emotional journey to the heart of the orient.

Here are just a few of the wonderful audience reactions from our previous show, Dreams of the Orient:
• Amazing show…so breathtaking!
• Sensual and a feast to watch
• Original, artistic, visually outstanding, sensuous and imaginative
• Absolutely amazing. Really enjoyable and well choreographed show

Scheherazade and 1001 Nights is directed, produced and choreographed by Charlotte Desorgher with theatre director Sandra Maturana.

Company of Dreams is immensely grateful for financial support from the Arts Council and a large body of friends and family who supported us via a successful Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign.
