Will Smith - Arabian Nights (2019) (From "Aladdin") - Lyrics and Video


Broadway Across Canada has brought the touring production of Disney's Aladdin to Ottawa for the first time as part of its 2022-2023 season. Celebrating its ninth anniversary on Broadway, it was obvious that audiences have been waiting a long time for the musical to visit and there was a sense of excitement in the air. Predictably, the audience was a mixture of all ages since the animated film that inspired the musical was released over thirty years ago, back in 1992.


Sheherazade has been telling stories to her husband for 1000 nights. Her execution is barely mentioned. On the 1001st night she tells the King she has run dry of stories and reminds him of his vow that the end of the stories would mean the end of her life. He is distraught until she says she has one more story but that she does not know the end of it. He insists she tell the story and so she begins Sheherazade's Story. It soon becomes clear she is telling him his own history as she talks of how a young girl loved the King despite his becoming a tyrant, killing wives day after day. He angrily interrupts but she tells him it is her own story and continues until she reveals that she is expecting the King's child. King Shahryar is delighted, proclaims that the death sentence upon his wife is lifted and, in the Finale, they sing of their love for each other and are joined by the Citizens who sing the main theme, Arabian Nights.

For centuries, composers have tried to spin tales in music. My understanding of how important the concept could be was cemented by Leonard Bernstein when I went to a New York Philharmonic rehearsal. Bernstein raised his hands up and asked, "Do I have to tell you the story of this Haydn symphony?"


These typically reserved musicians were practically jumping up and down, nodding their heads in anticipatory glee, like children at story time. Bernstein was the consummate story teller, often elaborating on or, dare I say, even fabricating some of the finer details for dramatic effect. But the memory was indelible for me, and the lesson was clear: It's all about the story.


Scheherazade weaves her tales seamlessly, starting with "The Sea and Sinbad's Ship." We hear the waves undulating (audio), retreating and growing in intensity. Every modulation represents an unexpected turn in the story, and I try to maximize the surprise of these twists. My goal is to reflect Scheherazade's own storytelling: to capture the imagination and leave the listener in a constant state of disequilibrium. For me, it's important not to have too many obvious arrival points, but rather to steer towards a goal and then veer away from it like the music and the story both do.


Scheherazade shows her true genius in the final movement, "The Festival at Baghdad; The Sea; Shipwreck on a Rock; Conclusion." The music begins with an impatient Sultan, his theme hurriedly coaxing Scheherazade to finish the story. He can barely contain himself by this point, in his excitement to hear what happens next. Each morning, when the executioner has arrived at his door, the Sultan has sent him away, saying "Come back tomorrow," so that Scheherazade can continue her tale.


Aladdin - Arabian Nights is written in the key of A Minor. According to the Theorytab database, it is the most popular key among Minor keys and the 7th most popular among all keys. Minor keys, along with major keys, are a common choice for popular music. The three most important chords, built off the 1st, 4th and 5th scale degrees are all minor chords (A minor, D minor, and E minor).See the A Minor Cheat Sheet for popular chords, chord progressions, downloadable midi files and more!


A Persian sultan whose first wife was unfaithful mistrusts all women until his beautiful young bride, Scheherazade, tells him a story on their first night together and begins a second one. The sultan eagerly awaits the conclusion of the following night. After 1001 nights of storytelling, he makes her his Queen. The stories of Scheherazade feature genies, thieves, and kings and raise storytelling to a new level of enchantment. Warning: Adult content.

MARINKA [Operetta Archives OA-1021] Certain obscure Broadway musicals remain mysterious even to those of us who collect obscure Broadway musicals. One of these has now come along on CD, courtesy of the California-based Operetta Foundation. Marinka's the name, Emmerich Kálmán's the composer, and the scandalous Mayerling affair is the subject. If you are not familiar with the Mayerling affair, you're not the only one. Crown Prince Rudolph of Austria and his teenaged mistress were found dead in the royal hunting lodge at Mayerling one fine day in 1889. Like the death of Czar Nicholas II (and the lingering mystery of his daughter Anastasia), this tale remained alive in the hearts and minds of the world for decades. It was a big deal at the time, though, with major historical implications; Rudolph was succeeded by his first cousin Archduke Ferdinand, whose assassination in Sarajevo in 1914 set off that little skirmish formerly known as the War to End All Wars.


Kálmán (1882-1953), meanwhile, was a name to be reckoned with on Broadway. Between 1914 and 1927, anyway. The Hungarian-born composer reigned in Vienna for the first third of the century, fusing the Viennese waltz with Hungarian flavoring. Sari, The Countess Maritza, The Circus Princess and other operettas found favor on the world stage, including in the environs of Times Square. The composer fled the Nazis in 1938, attaining U.S. citizenship in 1942. His first home-grown Broadway attempt sounds fascinating, although it never got off the ground: after Larry Hart opted out of the musical that began the Rodgers & Hammerstein marriage under the title Oklahoma!, the self-destructing lyricist joined with Kálmán for something called Miss Underground. (The common bond: the leading role was written for Hart's close friend Vivienne Segal, who had starred in the 1922 Broadway production of Kálmán's The Yankee Princess and, more recently, Hart's Pal Joey.) Hart's death late in November 1943 ended that project, however.


ARABIAN NIGHTS [Sepia 1116] The musicals of George Marion, Jr. have been all but absent from cast album CD shelves since the first cast album CD shelf was built in 1982, and suddenly the postman has simultaneously brought two! (Since we are giving Mr. Marion so many bytes, let us add that his main claims to fame are the screenplays for "The Gay Divorce" and "Love Me Tonight," plus the lyrics for "The Ladies Who Sing with the Band," which were popularized by their inclusion in Ain't Misbehavin'. He also wrote, with Johnny Green, a song that I especially like called "The Steam Is on the Beam.")


Since it was a Friday night, I decided to enjoy some wine during the show. For an attraction, the prices for alcoholic beverages are reasonable. There are a variety of mixed drinks served in a souvenir cup for $15 or without the souvenir cup for $10. On certain nights there are specials on beer and wine, or you can pre-pay an extra $10 for the Basic Drink Package: unlimited Bud Light and California blush wine throughout the night. Keep in mind that gratuity is not included with your ticket, it is a good idea to bring cash, or after dessert, tell your server that you would like to place a tip on your credit card.


Karim Al-Zand, composer Rachel Buchman, narrator Michael Webster, conductorTake your family on a thrilling adventure as a musical story unfolds before your ears! A brave and determined Parizade is on a quest to find a magical singing tree but encounters challenges (like a mysterious old dervish) along the way. Will she prevail in her journey?

Howard Ashman and Alan Menken had written several reprises, but they were ultimately cut from the final film.


Oh, I come from a land, from a faraway placeWhere the caravan camels roamWhere it's flat and immenseand the heat is intenseIt's barbaric, but hey, it's homeWhen the wind's from the eastAnd the sun's from the westAnd the sand in the glass is rightCome on down, stop on byHop a carpet and flyto another Arabian nightArabian nights like Arabian daysMore often than notare hotter than hotin a lot of good waysArabian nights 'neath Arabian moonsA fool off his guardcould fall and fall hardout there on the dunes


All:Arabian nightsGenie:It's a place where a princess would give up her crown for true loveBut her father, the Sultan is a stickler for the ancient waysAnd our heroes pals are as thick as thievesAdorable... but thieves


Four classic stories from 'Tales of the Arabian Nights' are cleverly interwoven into this colourful show featuring Princess Scheherazade. This show makes an excellent end of year show for primary phase, being a rich blend of music and drama, with beautifully orchestrated backings and lots of opportunities for dance and vibrant costume.
