The Musical "Scheherazade" is a new version of the famous story "1001 nights". It doesn't talk about individual stories like "Aladdin's Lamp" or "Sinbad the Sailor". On the contrary, it portrays the Baghdad Sultan who due to his wife's infidelity became insane. The daughter of the Vizier, sensual and smart, helps him restore his sanity.

The play sends a message, that we all need the love and that many people are afraid to love. In order to be able to love we mustn't be selfish and we have to be ready to give ourselves to someone.
