Ballet East Presents Arabian Nights
Aladdin, a street rat and a "diamond in the rough" is the only person who can enter the Cave of Wonders to retrieve the magical lamp for the dark Sorceress who serves as advisor to the Queen. Aladdin becomes trapped in the Cave of Wonders with his sidekick, Abu and is guided by the precious gems to discover the resident of the lamp. Aladdin develops a relationship with the Genie and uses his wishes to become a prince to chase the affections of the beautiful and kind-hearted Princess Jasmine. When the evil Sorceress realizes that the new suitor for the princess is actually the street rat Aladdin, she reveals his true identity and he is left to fight for Jasmine's attention with the knowledge of his upbringing.
