1001 NIGHTS – 2015 Summer Show Summary
What started as a desperate ploy for survival became an epic tale swept from the sands of time. Scheherazade told the Sultan 1001 tales, each more mysterious, exciting, and magical than the last—and in 2015, Circus Juventas brings its own enchantment in 1002 Arabian Nights—The untold story that weaves all others together. Join love-struck Aladdin on a treacherous journey to find a lamp like no other. Only the all-powerful Genie held captive within can help him win the love of the beautiful princess Jasmine. An action-packed adventure begins as they escape from the cavern of wonders where jewels come to life in a deadly display of balanced precision, a whirlwind of demonic Jinns practice their aerial sorcery, and a twisting web of venomous snakes are conjured by the evil vizier Jafar. With the help of Jasmine’s gaggle of mischief-making sisters, the triangle of teen idol Sinbad and his duo of battle-hardened monster killers, along with the reluctant hero Ali Baba and her wall–jumping thieves, Aladdin may finally catch the eye, and the heart, of his beloved.
Circus Juventas’ summer shows feature a select cast of their most advanced performers and are elaborate spectacles in the tradition of Cirque du Soleil. Circus Juventas productions represent the best of contemporary circus arts, combining evocative music, extraordinary sets and costumes, and stunning theatricality, dance and athletic artistry with a global flair.
