The fascinating tales of Sinbad, Aladdin and Ali Baba have fascinated and inspired us for generations, but is there any truth to these exotic stories of magic and adventure?



According to legend, over a thousand years ago a beautiful young woman struck a deal with a murderous sultan if she would tell him stories every night for 1001 nights, he would spare her life. The exotic, enthralling tales she weaved are set in India, Persia, Egypt, Turkey and China and came to be known as The Arabian Nights or A Thousand and One Nights.

Some of the most incredible tales ever told come to life in this riveting journey. With beautiful illustrations and captivating clips, trace the development of The Arabian Nights from ancient myths to modern movies, and explore the stories' timeless themes and ageless truths with leading authors and historians.

From the ancient Persian deserts to modern Hollywood, this is the definitive history of the ARABIAN NIGHTS.
