TALES FROM THE ARABIAN NIGHTS

by | Read by Toby Stephens

Children Ages 8+ • 2.15 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2012

This is a gorgeous introduction for young listeners to fine literature, a vastly different time and culture, and enchanting music. Narrator Toby Stephens is dazzling as he presents three of the best-known tales: “Aladdin and the Wonderful Lamp,” “Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves,” and “The Voyages of Sinbad the Sailor.” He skillfully renders the text—be it stupendous description, cunning adversaries, or wide-ranging emotion—as he spins Scheherazade's stories. At times, Stephens's accent has a modern sound that should appeal to a contemporary audience. Both male and female voices are distinct and appropriate to characters’ ages and situations. Rimsky-Korsakov's stirring music adds vastly to the rich emotion generated by the exotic tales. Listeners of all ages will be enthralled.
