A person of royalty. A princess named in 'One Thousand and One Nights', known for her wit, her tenacity, her daring, her passion and her delicate sensibility. The object of timeless praise and the centerpoint in the ballet 'Scheherazade' by Rimsky-Korsakov. A transcendental object of male desire and chivalry. An ephemeral, intangible beauty, a myth celebrated by nature, by a pantheon of gods, and by a boy from Sydney.
