Theatre Hopkins opens its final production of the season, Mary Zimmerman's adaptation of The Arabian Nights, this week on the Homewood campus.

Zimmerman, best known for her Tony Award-winning Ovid's Metamorphoses, has also adapted The Odyssey and Argonautika, recently seen at Washington's Shakespeare Theater.

Composer Kevin Clark, who received his master's degree from Peabody last month, has created an original musical score for this production. The cast, led by Peabody graduate Kateri Chambers as Scheherazade, includes Peabody musicians Anna Meadors and Imani Mosley. It also features Mick Simon, Laurel Burggraf, Jim Knost and Dyana Neal.
