AUSTRALIAN BALLET: The Merry Widow

Step into the ballrooms of Paris and join us for our production of The Merry Widow - a light-hearted production 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 dancing, The Merry Widow is a production you don't want to miss.

    Irresistibly frothy and lavishly theatrical, The Merry Widow has enough tangled affairs, narrow misses and jealous lovers to fuel a French farce. Based on the beloved operetta, this lively tale is set in the ballrooms and salons of Belle Époque Paris and is dressed magnificently in velvets, silks, spangles and feathers. Created especially for The Australian Ballet and captured live at the Sydney Opera House, The Merry Widow is a laugh-along favourite with hum-along melodies and its heart on its sleeve.
