She’s rich, she’s beautiful and she might just be the answer to a bankrupt principality’s financial woes. If, that is, she can be persuaded to marry the right man. Will Hanna Glawari marry for her country? Will she marry for love? Can she do both?
Franz Lehár’s sparkling operetta, The Merry Widow, comes waltzing into Melbourne in a glamorous new production starring Amelia Farrugia and David Hobson as Hanna Glawari and Danilo Danilovitch.
This show is everything an operetta should be: full of gorgeous frocks and fancy footwork, top hats and tails, with an exuberant score and show-stopping favourites such as ‘I’ll meet you at Maxim’s’ and ‘Vilja’.
It will be a hoot, a giggle, and a gorgeous night in the theatre.
A co-production with Opera North (UK)
