About this event

Chester Beatty present a free storytelling evening, Immortal Tales from Persian Poetry with live music.

For what promises to be a haunting event, storyteller Zahra Afsah and musician Mehdi Rostami will perform the well-loved tale of Khusrau and Shirin from the Five Poems (Khamsa) by the poet Nizami.

The Armenian princess Shirin has a long and complicated relationship with king Khusrau of Iran, but for a time, the princess is also admired by the lonely sculptor Farhad.

Free, no booking required.

Readers are advised to check with the venue before relying on the details published here.
