The Merry Widow
When: From 4th August – 4th November 2011
Where: Sydney Opera House
Lehar's luscious score waltzes back in a new production brimming with ball gowns and fans, top hats and tails. Amelia Farrugia is Hanna, the wise and beautiful widow, and David Hobson is Danilo, the lofty idealist. They squabble and flirt even as the music reveals their perfect harmony. Will this obstinately unromantic couple ever get together?
Franz Lehar's luscious score has been enchanting audiences since its first performance in 1905. Opera Australia's production this season by director Giles Havergal presents a production that recaptures the original glamour with a dash of twenty-first century artistry.
