The Persian king, Shāhriar, convinced of the perfidy of all women, marries a woman every day, whom he kills on the morning of the wedding night in revenge.

Scheherazade, eldest daughter of the Grand Vizier, then volunteers to put an end to the massacre, and develops a stratagem with her best friend Dunyàzàd.

After her wedding, in the evening, she tells a thrilling story to the Sultan without finishing it.
Her husband wanted to know the rest so badly that he saved his life for another day.

This stratagem lasted for a thousand and one nights at the end of which the sultan abandoned his resolution and decided to keep Scheherazade with him forever having recognized his qualities of heart and mind.

The story of Scheherazade, revised and adapted by Igokat comprises about thirty extremely varied stories where the marvelous and the magical objects occupy an important place (the Genies, the Ladies of Baghdad, the seven voyages of Sinbad the sailor, the history of Ali Baba and of course that of Aladdin and the Wonderful Lamp).
