Et l'aube chassant la nuit: 1 - Sharyar et Shéhérazade

January 9, 2018 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm. The first in a series of four shows based on the Tales of a Thousand and One Nights, with Jacques Falquet and his special guests.After discovering that his wife has been unfaithful, a king vows to marry a new woman every day—and kill her the following day. But can the world survive without women? Sheherazade decides to put an end to this murderous folly by placing her own life at risk: she will marry the king and fool him into breaking his oath. How? She spends each night spinning tales, stopping at the break of dawn, since storytelling is not allowed during the day. But the king always wants to know what happens next… In this way, one tale leads to another and, over the course of a thousand and one nights, Sheherazade transforms a mad king into a wise king.. 125, promenade du PortageGatineau, QC J8X 2K2..
