In January of 2009 the project took shape. It was dedicated to the opening story of the Thousand and One Nights,
The story of the stories, and the circumstances that led Scheherazade to tell the king her nightly tales, not just to save
Her neck, as it is thought, but also to cure him from his blinding jealousy.
