Scheherazade's clever efforts to delay her execution at the hands of a powerful Persian king.

A powerful program featuring works from three gifted choreographers: Viltor Plotnikov, George Balanchine and Antony Tudor. Plotnikov, who the Providence Journal hails as "among the most innovative and evocative choreographers in the country", will present yet another world premiere. Balanchine's Donizetti Variations, a RI premiere originally performed by NY City Ballet as a salute to the 100th anniversary of Italy's unification, and Tudor's Jardin Aux Lilas (Lilac Garden), his most famous work, also a RI premiere, complete the bill.
