“Love Stories of the Shahnameh” is based on epic poems from Ferdowsi’s Shahnameh (“Book of Kings” – Iranian National Epic), one of the masterpieces of Persian literature, retelling the tales of “Shirin & Khosrow”, “Bahram & Arezoo” and “Sohrab & Gordafarid”
“Shirin & Khosrow”, is about the love and union of Khosrow-Parviz, a renowned king of the Sassanid dynasty, and Shirin, a beautiful Armenian princess.
“Bahram & Arezoo”, examines the love between Bahram-e-Goor, a famous brave Iranian warrior king, and Arezoo, a beautiful girl who sings, plays harp, and serves wine gracefully.
“Sohrab & Gordafarid”, explores the infatuation, frustration, and unfulfilled love between Sohrab, a young Iranian-Turanian hero, and Gordafarid, a brave and clever Iranian warrior maiden.
