You don't have 1000 and One Nights...because there's just one afternoon performance at the Meagher Theatre. SO GET TICKETS NOW to hear music inspired by the greatest story-teller ever imagined...and more!

Let the talent, energy and passion of these outstanding musicians lure you into the desert, with melodies that evoke images of vast waves of golden sand undulating like an ocean... Feel the winds of adventure swirl around you as the music portrays the many exciting stories within the story of a woman in the midst of a dangerous game of cat and mouse with a vengeful King! All played-to-life exquisitely by Delaware County's renowned orchestra.

Violinist, Nina Vieru
Considered Rimsky-Korsakov's most popular work, the story is about a King whose wife betrays him with another.  He swears off love (after killing her) and decides to marry a different woman everyday, and kill her each morning after, so that he never experiences betrayal again.

But when Scheherazade becomes his wife, she saves herself by spinning 1000 stories over a 1000+1 nights, always ending at dawn with a cliffhanger moment...(sort of the original Soap Opera!). When she finally tells the King she has no more stories...he discovers he's fallen in love with her.

The Program also includes Jean Sibelius' Karelia Suite, and Henryk Wieniawski's Fantasie Brilliante on Themes from Gounod's Faust, Op. 20 with a solo by premier violinist, Nina Vieru.

Nina Vieru has performed on the most prominent stages in Romania, Moldova, Serbia, Mexico and the United States including Carnegie Hall, Alice Tully Hall, Verizon Hall and Perelman Hall playing an original Nicolo Gagliano violin. SHOWTIME: 3PM
