Live at Lynn and the Lynn Conservatory of Music present the staged concert version of Kismet September 26th & 27th at the Wold Performing Arts Center. This special concert version production opens Lynn’s arts, culture and ideas season with a magnificent evening featuring the full Lynn Philharmonia Orchestra accompanying a cast lead by Broadway veterans Jay Stewart and Jan McArt, with John Lariviere as the Caliph, Rachel Klein as Marsinah, and Shane Tanner as the Wazir.
Set in Persia during the time of the Arabian Nights, this fairy tale tells of the repeated changes of fortune that engulf a wily poet and the whirlwind of circumstances that could only happen when kismet (fate) takes hand.
With three Tony Awards (including Best Musical), a television version, an MGM smash film and repeated revivals, this lush score with its masterful libretto and delicious melodies includes “Stranger in Paradise,” “This Is My Beloved” and “Baubles, Bangles and Beads.”
The exclusive production sponsor for the 2015-16 Wold season opening is Elaine Johnson Wold. The staged concert version of Kismet is produced and directed by Jan McArt and conducted by Terence Kirchgessner.
Tickets to this season opening are $70 box, $55 orchestra or $50 mezzanine. To purchase your seats today, call +1 561-237-9000 or visit events.lynn.edu.
