Narrator Toby Stephens' lighthearted performance of this classic tale is sure to become a favorite with young listeners. Aladdin is tricked by an evil magician into a cave but manages to escape with a lamp that contains a genie who grants Aladdin everything he desires. Stephens effortlessly evokes Aladdin's youthful voice, contrasting it with the voices of the other characters, from the genie's growl to the Sultan's stern commands, and his descriptions of the unimaginable riches and treasures in the story will linger in listeners' minds.
This is a story from the Tales from the Arabian Nights collection.
Toby Stephens takes us back to the world of cunning, adventure, mishap, and fun. Sheherezade, night after night, weaves her tales, and Aladdin and his Magic Lamp, Sinbad the Sailor, Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves, and other tales come alive. The unforgettable music of Rimsky-Korsakov sets the scene perfectly. A delightful treat for young listeners.
