Captured live from the Sydney Opera House in May 2018, the 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, The Merry Widow is a laugh-along favourite with hum-along melodies and its heart on its sleeve.
