Princess Zobeida has been happily married for 39 days to King Sinadab. But the old priest Abdalak reveals a terrible secret to her: her husband is an evil sorcerer and will turn her into a cow tomorrow because he does this to all his wives because after 40 days he loses all interest in them ...

"Sleight of hand, speed of changing clothes, monsters from craft paper, caskets with invisible springs - magic, the joy of the theatre".
