    • Synopsis
    • In which Scheherazade tells of the restlessness that befell the country: “It hath reached me, O auspicious King, that in a sad country where people dream of mermaids and whales, unemployment spreads. Forests burn into the night despite the falling rain ; men and women long to set out to sea in the middle of Winter.

And seeing the morning break, Scheherazade fell silent.
