Benefit for UN Trust Fund to End Violence Against Women

This concert celebrates the resilience of women and girls in the face of violence. Ravel and Rimsky-Korsakov were inspired by Scheherazade, the narrator of One Thousand and One Arabian Nights, who neutralized violence against herself and enriched global folklore for centuries. The Scheherazade Initiative is a partnership with the United Nations Trust Fund to End Violence against Women to raise funds and public awareness for some of the world's most catalytic, innovative, and promising approaches to eliminating gender-based violence.
