1001 Nights

Two nights in a row, but we managed only the first act of the first night. The plot was repetitive, the staging weak, the cast merely adequate, the choreography amateur: in short there was no reason to stay. So we left and gave the tickets to night two away.

It was interesting to notice how quickly you forgot the fact the play was being performed in three languages,English, French and Arabic.

    The seats were awful – no where to put my knees – so the show needed to be great for me to endure six hours. It wasn't.The best thing about it was that, by giving away our tickets for the second night, I got to see Andromache.
