"The Merry Widow" Photo Gallery

One of the world's most popular operettas, The Merry Widow delights with the opulent sights and sounds of Paris at the turn of the nineteenth century. The fabulously wealthy Hanna Glawari, a citizen of the fictional country of Pontevedro, has recently been widowed. To avoid her millions leaving Pontevedro, the suave Count Danilo and other members of the Pontevedrian embassy must prevent her from marrying a foreigner. The pursuit--and fun--commences...

A captivating musical score filled with exuberant waltzes and irresistible melodies, The Merry Widow will capture your imagination and your heart.
