This is the first time these incredible organizations have collaborated on a presentation (and hopefully not the last), and it’s sure to be magical.
With three Tony Awards (including Best Musical), a television version and an MGM smash film, Kismet is one of the most renowned musicals to grace the Broadway stages. Kismet has proven a winner with audiences time and again, thanks to its exotic setting, appealing characters and wry sense of humor… not to mention a lush score that is adapted from the soaring melodies of Alexander Borodin.
A series of well-navigated, sticky circumstances have landed the quick-witted Public Poet in opulence. His rolling in gold is cut short when his maneuvering comes full circle, though, and he is forced in front of the Wazir, who is set to chop off The Poet’s hand. As luck would have it, a last-minute realization stays the Wazir’s hand and saves The Poet’s. The wild ride continues as The Poet’s daughter falls in love with the handsome Caliph, The Poet falls in love with one of the Wazir’s wives and everyone falls in love with the whirlwind of occurrences that could only happen in a musical of this nature.
With well known songs like Strangers in Paradise, Night of my Nights, This is my Beloved and more Kismet is sure to bring a song to your heart and a spring to your step.
