The Merry Widow

London Coliseum, London

Sorry, this show is not currently booking.

The Merry Widow is Franz Lehár‘s comic masterpiece, played out in a stream of memorable melodies including the familiar ‘Vilja Song’ and ‘Merry Widow Waltz’.

At the Embassy Ball, wealthy widow, Hanna Glawari, leads her society suitors on a merry dance. But how will she win Danilo who counts her riches worthless?

Making their ENO debuts with Lehár’s classic are Director Max Webster (The Lorax) and sought-after Estonian conductor Kritiina Poska. As the vivacious Hanna, ENO favourite Sarah Tynan returns for her second major appearance of the season. She is joined by Nathan Gunn as Danilo, while ENO legend Andrew Shore plays the pompous Zeta.

The Merry Widow runs from 1 March 2019 until 13 April 2019 at the London Coliseum.

WHAT’S THE STORY?

With a truly glamourous setting, Lehár’s operetta centres on the relationship between the dazzling and wealthy young widow Hanna and Danilo, who has an appetite for wine and women. As this delightful tale of a woman’s quest for love unfolds, their burgeoning romance is hampered by mishap, intrigue and comedic misadventure.
