Though the tales of the 1001 Nights have been told many times, it was probably Sir R. F. Burton’s 1885 translation of the Arabian Knights which made these exotic stories famous worldwide, inspiring numerous artists and composers. Soprano Christie Weber performs Maurice Ravel’s picturesque Shéhérazade songs, paired with Rimsky- Korsakov’s colorful and evocative symphonic suite of scenes from the sweeping Middle Eastern epic.
