“THE FAMILY DANCE”: Sheikh Al-Islam (Liz Dengel, center) resists an unpleasant surprise, as the family (left to right: Dave Holtz, Jerry Peng, Stacy Testa and Irfan Kherani) of his daughter’s new husband moves in for the celebrations, in Mary Zimmerman’s “The Arabian Nights,” playing at Theatre Intime through April 26.

Stories Within Stories Within Stories in “The Arabian Nights” Feature Moral Complexity, Bawdy Hijinks, and Steamy Romance

Donald Gilpin

Mary Zimmerman’s theatrical adaptations of The Odyssey, Argonautika (Jason’s Heroic Quest for the Golden Fleece), traditional fairy tales (The Secret in the Wings) and the myths of Ovid’s Metamorphoses have won her international acclaim as a playwright and director, including a MacArthur Fellowship, a Tony Award, and a richly productive and mutually rewarding liaison with Princeton’s McCarter Theatre.

Princeton University Glee Club Ends Season With Mendelssohn Oratorio

Nancy Plum

This is the time of year at Princeton University for performances dedicated to and honoring Princetonians gone by. Next weekend the University Orchestra will present its annual Stuart Mindlin concerts and this past Friday night, the University Glee Club, director by Richard Tang Yuk, performed its annual concert honoring former Glee Club conductor Walter Nollner. These concerts usually feature the great choral masterworks, and Friday night’s performance in Richardson Auditorium was no exception, as the sixty-voice Glee Club presented Felix Mendelssohn’s oratorio Elijah. The Glee Club was joined for four vocal soloists performing the major roles and a professional orchestra comprised of players from a number of area ensembles.
