The Merry Widow
St. Petersburg Opera • October 18, 20, & 22 at the Palladium Theatre
Glamorous widow Hanna Glawari (Kelli Butler) is worth 20 million francs, which the scheming Pontevedean ambassador, Baron Zeta, wants to keep in the country. Of her prospective suitors, only Count Danilo holds the key to Hanna’s heart – through a series of misunderstandings, jealous rages, comic interludes and moments of unbridled passion, The Merry Widow takes them – and the audience – from elegant parties to the intimate inner recesses of the human heart. In English with projected text above the stage.
