We had to approach it in a fresh way, both in form and in content. It seemed impossible at first glance, but we love to deal with The Impossible. It’s what artists thrive on.”

From his end, Wassim Rizk, Chief Producer and Managing partner of Multiple international, added: “History gave us 1001 Nights. This show added one more night to history.”
