With Alexander Borodins soaring music fashioned by Robert Wright and George Forrest into Stranger in Paradise, Baubles, Bangles and Beads and even more evergreens, Kismet turned the Broadway stage into a glittering, gleaming Arabian Nights dream. Ideal material, in fact, for the dream factory. To Hollywood and director Vincente Minnelli, Kismet was kismet. This lavish musical follows one fateful, fabulous day as a beggar-poet (Howard Keel) and his daughter (Ann Blyth) cross paths with a wicked wizard, a wily temptress, a handsome prince, a magical curse, opulent sets and exotic adventure. Princes come, princes go, sings the beggar. Glorious Kismet endures!
