Rimsky-Korsakov’s popular poetic telling of four tales from 1001 Arabian Nights, Scheherazade, has awed symphony audiences for 150 years. Newly arrived members of the Alexandria community share the rhythms and voices of their native Afghanistan with a tabla concerto, Afghan songs and poetry. The program opens with Adventures on Earth from E.T. the Extraterrestrial.
