-'''Ali Baba''' is a [[fictional character]] based in [[Ancient Arabia]]. He is described in the adventure tale of ''Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves'', part of ''[[The Book of One Thousand and One Nights]]''. Some critics believe that this story was added to ''The Book of One Thousand and One Nights'' by one of its European transcribers, [[Antoine Galland]], an [[18th-century]] [[France|French]] orientalist who may have heard it in oral form from an [[Arab]] story-teller from [[Aleppo]]. However, [[Richard F. Burton]] claimed it to be part of the original ''Book of One Thousand and One Nights''. This story has also been used as a popular [[pantomime]] plot—perhaps most famously in the pantomime/[[musical theatre|musical]] ''[[Chu Chin Chow]]'' (1916).+
