Champagne, hard cash and sumptuous waltzes fuel Lehár’s delicious romantic comedy as Hanna and Danilo decide whether to give love a second chance.
Hanna Glawari is wealthy, single and a target for gold-digging French aristocrats. At a glamorous Parisian party, the Pontevedrin ambassador Baron Zeta conspires to keep Hanna’s fortune in Pontevedro, commissioning Danilo to seduce and marry her. Unknown to Zeta, Danilo and Hanna have a shared history.
Folk dances, a can-can and sublime serenades form the soundtrack to this will-they-won’t-they second-time-lucky romance. The Merry Widow is one of the most scintillating and seductive nights in the theatre.
