The Merry Widow: October 1995

By Franz Lehár

The plot centers around the wealthy widow, Hanna Glawari, and the various suitors who vie for her affections and her fortune. The action takes place in the imaginary Parisian-style Pontevedrian embassy in Paris and follows the antics of the embassy officials as they attempt to keep the wealthy widow from marrying a foreign suitor and thereby transferring her fortune out of the country. The operetta features a mix of humor, romance, and cultural satire, set to Lehár’s iconic musical score.
