Although best known as a children's story, The Lady or the Tiger will please listeners of any age. Walter Zimmerman narrates this lyric contemplation of justice and human fate. The plot centers around an accused man's trial: He must choose between two closed doors, one of which will reveal a hungry tiger, and the other, a beautiful women. Which door will he choose, and what will be the outcome of his sentence? Zimmerman's kind voice and precise narration give this fairy tale a sense magic and a depth notwithstanding its 18-minute length.
