Presented in the form of a feverish love dream, 1001 Nights (based on Amano`s book of artwork) is the first performance of the groundbreaking "Filmharmonic" series, which presents new orchestral works by film composers in tandem with short films made by A-list directors. Nights is the series's only animated work, and plans originally called for the film to be completely computer animated.

Eng dubbed (however, only the intro had vocals once the show began it was just a musical)
More classic music art than regular anime

A cluster of events all coexisting with one. Story wise and art wise. With the stories the scene would change slightly and so would the character's personalities. Art wise you would have semi realistic art, black and white art, dark art, light art, morphed art, and a bunch of others.
