Baubles, bangles, bright shiny beads...


“Stranger in Paradise,” “Baubles, Bangles, and Beads,” and “Not Since Ninevah” grace the score of this Middle Eastern-flavored tale with music based on the scores of Borodin.  Hajj, the beggar and poet, spins his rhymes in the court of the Wazir and catches the eye of the Wazir’s mistress, Lalume, while Hajj’s daughter Marsinah, unbeknownst to her, has turned the head of the young Caliph.
