Nights – Funny Musicals – Adaptation of The Arabian Nights


nights poster fest

Under the murderous regime of a bitter King, two sisters, Ria and Dee, set about saving the lives of local girls, through Ria’s gift for telling stories.

Halting the nightly cycle of lust and murder, through a talent for cliff-hanger endings, Dee and Ria survive and thrive.
Performed by two singers and two instrumentalists, ‘Nights’ is a very different, all female adaptation of this famous tale, with a distinctly practical approach to life and surviving men.


‘Blurring the divide between opera and musical theatre, Madam Renards is a company committed to producing vocally challenging, original works for contemporary audiences.
This production is recommended for ages 12 and over due to adult themes.’

“Matt Fox and Jessie Thompson brought a fresh and contemporary flourish of humour within their version of Arabian Night; look out for further performances of musical excellence and storytelling in the coming months” – The Puttyfoot Perspective

“The score sets a pretty high technical standard…the influence of Sondheim and a touch of English Folk music, nicely blended” – The Ocelot
