The Heart of Shahrazad

  • Garden Center 1059 Shady Ave Pittsburgh, PA, 15232 United States (map)

We invite you to Amiche's World Premiere of The Heart of Shahrazad. Experience the journey of healing as told through the eyes of Shahrazad, a young woman living in the midst of a violent world. Inspired by the stories found in The Arabian Nights watch as Shahrazad's journey unfolds, as portrayed by actress Sarah Carleton, with music performed by harpist Marissa Knaub and soprano Lara Lynn Cottrill. Through the unique blend of these three artists, including original music composed by Eliane Aberdam and script by Sarah Carleton, explore a story that delves into the past to find wisdom for our modern times. 

Experience the Power of Stories to Heal.
Be Moved. Be Challenged.
