With Alexander Borodin's 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 (Angg Blyth) cross paths with a wicked wazir, a wily temptress, a handsome prince, a magical curse, opulent sets and exotic adventure. "Princes come, princes go," sings the beggar. Glorious Kismet endures!
