The impoverished European principality of Pontevedro is in crisis. Ambassador Baron Zeta, faces the task of ensuring that the beautiful and wealthy young widow Hanna Glavari marries a fellow Pontevedrian. But who? The most likely candidate, the charming Count Danilo, seems far more interested in champagne and the chorus ladies than doing his duty to the fatherland.
This jewel of Viennese operetta is loved for its beautiful, romantic music, including the great soprano highlight ‘Vilia’, Danilo’s bravura showcase ‘I’m Off to Chez Maxim’s’ and the beguiling ‘Merry Widow Waltz’.
Director and choreographer Graeme Murphy weaves his magic in this sumptuous production, designed by Michael Scott-Mitchell and Jennifer Irwin.
