Ali to Karim scene: A Fatimid Pageant in Cairo.

After captivating the Jamat and, in a special way, bringing the history of the Ismaili Imams so close to the Jamat during their tour of the United States, the cast and crew of ALI TO KARIM: A Tribute to the Ismaili Imams share their parting reflections and memories of what the experience was like for them."

The audience eagerly anticipates the start of the evening performance at the Redondo Beach Performing Arts Center in Los Angeles.

A simple white stage at the Redondo Performing Arts Center lit up, as 1 400 years of Ismaili history unfolded through a mix of drama, comedy, narrative, legend, poetry, painting and film. The cast stole the audience away on a roller coaster journey of tears, laughter and merriment.

Rich with ceremony, pageantry and tradition, ALI TO KARIM: A Tribute to the Ismaili Imams is a docu-theatre production about the Ismaili Imamat and its contributions to Islam and Muslim civilizations over the past 1 400 years. This Golden Jubilee International Programme toured the USA between July – August 2008.
