ENJOY THE SPARKLING WIT AND THE FLUSH OF LOVE’S BLUSH IN THIS CHARMING AUDIENCE FAVOURITE

Step into the ballrooms of Fin de siècle Paris, and delight in Robert Helpmann and Ronald Hynd’s light-hearted production of The Merry Widow – filled with tangled affairs, narrow misses and jealous lovers.

The tiny nation of Pontevedro is on the verge of bankruptcy, and the dashing Count Danilo must rescue his country by marrying the newly widowed and fabulously wealthy Hanna Glawari. But trouble brews when he discovers that he rejected her when she was his childhood sweetheart. Will she forgive him?

With plenty of ‘wow’ moments, lavish glamour, show-stopping costumes and breathtaking dance, The Merry Widow is an uplifting tale of romance and fortune that never fails to capture the imagination. Features guest artists David McAllister and Steven Heathcote.
