On one fateful day a poor poet and his beautiful daughter Marisnah find themselves on an adventure they will never forget. Kismet
fed 1950 s America s appetite for eastern exotica. In the popular imagination Baghdad was a place of mystery, luxury and sexuality. Here, beautiful princesses, autocratic rulers, enlightened poets and court spin doctors play out a hilarious and dangerous story -part fantasy, part history. First performed on Broadway in 1953, Kismet
was an overnight sensation winning 6 Tony Awards - including the only posthumous Tony ever awarded for Borodin s melodies.
