Kismet choral show Nov. 1 - Nov. 3

Published on: October 27, 2007

The Cy-Fair College Choral Department presents “Kismet” an enchanted musical set Nov. 1 through Nov. 3 in the Main Stage Theatre.

“Kismet” is a fairy-tale story of one day in the life of Hajj, the poet-beggar, who gains wealth, avenges wrong done to his daughter, discovers new love and eventually triumphs over an evil Wazir to become an Emir of Baghdad.

“From the opulent palaces to the teeming bazaars to the lush, moonlight gardens - Kismet is filled with sensual dance and magical song including the famous ‘Stranger in Paradise’, ‘Baubles, Bangles and Beads’ as well as ‘This is My Beloved’,” said Alex Qian, Cy-Fair College associate music professor. “Set in the magnificent splendor of ancient Baghdad, Kismet embodies all the swirling excitement of the Arabian Nights with its colorful costumes.”

A preview performance is set for 7:30 p.m. Nov. 1 with all tickets just $5. A reception follows the Nov. 2 performance also set at 7:30 p.m. with $10 tickets for the general audience and $5 for seniors and students with proper id.

The Main Stage Theatre is located in the Center for the Arts building on the Barker Cypress campus at 9191 Barker Cypress.

Save the dates for other Cy-Fair College holiday season performances including “The Honky Tonk Angels Holiday Spectacular” Nov. 8 through Dec. 2, Jazz Band performance Dec. 5 and another choral performance “A Winter Collection” Dec. 6 through Dec. 7.
