Talented and well-trained young performers, ages 12 to 19, star in Tales From the Arabian Nights, based on the beloved collection of ancient and timeless stories. Desperate to stave off her own execution, the beautiful young maiden known as Scheherazade spins tale after tale for her new husband, the king, who's trapped under an evil charm. Each night, she spellbinds him with the famed stories of Ali Baba and the 40 Thieves, Sinbad the Sailor and Aladdin's magic lamp, hoping that her vivid imagination will buy her the time she needs to break the spell and win her own freedom. Generations have been swept up in the excitement and romance of this classic, first published in English around the early 1700s. Learn More

We bought these tickets at the last minute and the price was too good to pass up. We just moved here and the venue was amazing! On top of that our seats were great. Omar and his crew were more than we expected. His musical background is so diverse and so were his musicians. We loved every minute of this show. I only found it odd that Omar placed his piano in way that his back was facing the audience. It really didn't matter cause he still engaged the audience. After the show, he met with his fans and signed CDs. If you find a concert or performance in Tempe Center for the Arts, you must go cause the venue is easy to get to and it's quite beautiful. If Omar Sosa is in your area, you must really see him. You will be happy with his performance.
Omar Sosa’s latest studio album, Eggun: The Afri-Lectric Experience, was released worldwide in February 2013. Eggun, in the West African spiritual practice of Ifa and its various expressions throughout the African Diaspora, are the spirits of those who have gone before us, both in our personal families and those who serve as our spiritual guides.
Following the success of the Kind Of Blue commission, Omar began to include the new arrangements into the repertoire of his regular touring ensemble, resulting in the creation of the The Afri-Lectric Experience. The featured horn players are Joo Kraus on trumpet (from Germany), Leandro Saint-Hill on saxophones and flute (from Cuba), and Peter Apfelbaum on saxophones and percussion (from U.S.A.). Omar’s longtime rhythm section of Marque Gilmore on drums (from U.S.A.) and Childo Tomas on electric bass (from Mozambique) create the foundation.
