June 16 – July 22, 2007 in Goodman's Albert Theatre

Around 2 hours and 25 minutes

Adapted by award-winning director Mary Zimmerman from a twelfth-century Persian epic, Mirror of the Invisible World tells the story of a young King who, after falling in love with seven princesses—each from a different land—builds seven pavilions to house his beautiful brides. Each night, a different princess weaves for him another wondrous tale of love, loss and adventure. Praised for its rich theatricality when first produced in the intimate Goodman studio, this production will be reimagined for the expansive Albert stage.
