This light-hearted romantic comedy promises a fun night for all. Lehár’s charming melodies have kept this operetta in the repertoire since its premiere in 1905, and it continues to be presented in German and in French and English translations. As the wealthy young widow Hannah Glawari ends her mourning and begins to look for a new husband, she rekindles an old flame with the Count Danilo Danilovitsch. However, her childhood sweetheart swears he will never tell Hannah he loves her, because he fears it would appear he is only interested in her fortune. Will these two lovers overcome their pride and find happiness together? Come join us to find out.
