A Story of the Arabian Nights
The Fox & Beggar Theater invites you to step into the pages of an ancient story book. Here, you will find fairies and djinn. You will find rituals of grieving, and of enduring. You will find mad poets and ancient Shaikhs; circus tricks and magic doors; the ghost dances of dead brides and the desert songs of bird maidens. Above all, you will find a story about love.


For this is a story about love… and it begins with a King.

Adapted from The 1,001 Arabian Nights, “Angamazad” fuses musical theater, spoken word, acrobatics, contemporary dance, cirque nouveau, and lavish artwork into a sensually stunning journey. Using the story of Hasan of Basra as its framework, "Angamazad" takes viewers into a labyrinth of storytelling in which the tellers eventually become the told.
