Die lustige Witwe

Operetta by Franz Lehárin German language with English surtitles Operetta by Franz Lehár in German language with English surtitles
Franz LehárFranzLehár

The Merry Widow premiered at Theater an der Wien at the end of 1905 and thus began its journey to becoming a world triumph.

Hanna and Danilo were a breath of fresh air and became the paragons of the great romantic Hollywood couple. Hanna is a modern and witty woman whose directness doesn’t diminish her elegance. Danilo, meanwhile, is a bon viveur who
spends his days at Maxim’s with neither prospects nor purpose after losing his great love. These two proud characters almost rob each other of a second chance at love through their game of playing hot and cold.
