The original music for the ballet was by Rimsky-Korsakov and based on the tale of the 'Arabian Nights'. The Ballets Russes production was choreographed by Michel Fokine with design by Leon Bakst. Lush and decadent and with the inclusion of an orgy scene between the Shah's wives and negro slaves, it caused a sensation when it premiered in Paris in 1910.
