An orchestral score, complete with harps and violins, coupled with Toby Stephens’ epic, larger-than-life performance and full-bodied delivery, enliven Andrew Lang’s retelling of the adventures of Sinbad, in which the legendary Middle Eastern folk hero, fueled by an insatiable wanderlust to explore the far corners of the world, squares off against giant serpents, ravenous cannibals, and sinister birdmen over the course of seven tumultuous voyages set in the high seas in this spellbinding audiobook that will pique the interest of anyone fascinated with Persian mythology.
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.
