The Merry Widow
by Franz Lehár

Indulge in the elegance, romance, and comedic brilliance of Franz Lehar’s lighthearted operetta, “The Merry Widow” with an unexpected twist. Count Danilo and Hannah fall in love, but their marriage is thwarted by his uncle because of Hannah’s insufficient wealth. Instead, Hannah marries a wealthy older man who soon dies, leaving her all his fortune. The country is suffering financially, so the Baron and his wife host a party for the widowed Hannah – part of a scheme to find her a husband amongst her compatriots to keep her wealth in the country. Danilo feigns disinterest for fear his heart will be broken yet again. This flirtatious and humorous love story is woven together with energetic dance sequences and infectious tunes sung in English, and accompanied live by the PSU Orchestra.
