Colorado audiences fell under the spell of “Kismet” with its enchanting music! “Stranger In Paradise”, “And This Is My Beloved”, and “Baubles, Bangles and Beads” - these beautiful songs were all in "Kismet”! These gorgeous melodies are based on the themes of Russian composer Alexander Borodin, and the exotic music for the 1950s Tony award winning Broadway show written by Wright and Forrest. Audiences were swept away into this Arabian night fantasy of romance, murder, lust, and mistaken identities.
