Shahriyar, the Sultan of ancient Persia, is left bitter after being betrayed by an unfaithful wife. For this reason, each night he marries an innocent virgin, only to have her beheaded the following morning. This pattern continues until he meets his vizier’s oldest daughter, Scheherazade, who is able to conquer and soften the sultan’s hardened heart with her stories and myths... This legend has also captured the heart of dancer, choreographer and teacher Leo Mujic, who has worked with well-known ballet companies and theatres in Germany, Austria, the United States, Hungary, Croatia, Sanremo and Australia.
