Two stories from A Thousand and One Nights are brought to life by "the actress with 100 voices," Graciela Lecube. "Ali Baba and the 40 Thieves" tells of a poor woodcutter who sees a band of robbers entering a secret cave using the magic words "Open Sesame." He uses these words to enrich himself and faces the wrath of the thieves, who scheme to murder him. In the second, "Sinbad the Sailor," a merchant from Baghdad finds great wealth in each of his 7 voyages. The first 2 voyages tell of his encounter with a whale and his encounter with an eagle. These wonderful Persian-Indian-Arabian tales were collected in the 15th century. In Spanish.
