As the story goes, betrayed by his first wife, a Persian king marries one virgin every day only to behead her in the morning…until he meets Sheherazade. An artful storyteller, she lives 1001 nights before winning the king’s love and her life. Equally captivating is our storyteller, Met Opera soloist Ekaterina Semenchuk, who also sings of enchanting Summer Nights.

"This marvelous mezzo from Minsk...must be listened to, not with the ears but empathically, with a hearkening soul." -Stephanie Friedman, San Francisco Classical Voice
