A fairy tale production of princes, princesses, genies and eclectic equestrian expertise
If you love horses and fairy-tale stories with princes, princesses and genies battling evil doers, Arabian Nights is the Orlando dinner theater experience for you!
Arabian Nights entertains between 7,500 and 8,000 guests per week on average in what they advertise as the world’s largest equestrian arena for a permanent show. If you haven’t been one of those guests yet, Audrey Padgett, Vice President of Public Relations and Marketing has something to say, “The thing I tell anyone who hasn’t visited Arabian Nights is that we have something for everyone to enjoy. With more than 22 acts, our talented horses and performers capture the imagination of adults and children alike. We truly believe that we will win your heart.”
The show is an fairy tale love story featuring an amazing selection of horses - Arabian, Andalusian, Appaloosa, Belgian, Percheron, American Quarter Horses, Paint Horses, Irish Draught, Canadian Warmblood Shetland Ponies and a Black Stallion that appears exclusively at Arabian Nights.
The 90 minute show offers everything from "a western square dance on horseback to Gypsies doing back flips, juggling and even jumping through a flaming hoop!"
The current production is titled "American Princess" in which all-American girl and champion rider Sherry Smith discovers that she is actually the Princess Scheherazade complete with a genie named Abracadabra.
Abracadabra takes the princess "to Europe to see the famous military-style quadrilles; to Latin America to see the romance of the garrocha; to a Gypsy camp to see unbelievable acrobatics on horseback; to the world of Imagination to see that beauty of the magical, mystical unicorn; and back to the U.S.A. where four fabulous acts honor America!" Abracadabra and Princess Scheherazade battle the evil Prince Vaneer and discover her true love, Prince Khalid.
