The Merry Widow
The Merry Widow is Franz Lehár‘s comic masterpiece, played out in a stream of memorable melodies including the familiar ‘Vilja Song’ and ‘Merry Widow Waltz’.
With a truly glamourous setting, Lehár’s operetta centres on the relationship between the dazzling and wealthy young widow Hanna and Danilo, who has an appetite for wine and women. As this delightful tale of a woman’s quest for love unfolds, their burgeoning romance is hampered by mishap, intrigue and comedic misadventure.
Making their ENO debuts with Lehár’s classic are Director Max Webster (The Lorax) and sought-after Estonian conductor Kritiina Poska. As the vivacious Hanna, ENO favourite Sarah Tynan returns for her second major appearance of the season. She is joined by Nathan Gunn as Danilo, while ENO legend Andrew Shore plays the pompous Zeta.

I’ve loved the sound track since aged 8 I’m now in my 50s and finally got to see it performed and Absolutely fabulous it was too. Now I can picture the performance when I listen to my CD, although I believe a song was missing and some wording was changed to suit the stage set etc. But still very funny and enjoyable. Fantastic voices very well performed and sung beautifully. I sat in stalls row N and had a great view with leg room and I’m 5’10. You will not be disappointed no matter where you sit!

We attended the Merry Widow last evening and thought that the orchestra, sets and overall show was excellent. It was a pity that the sound was dreadful. We found it very difficult to hear the leading lady especially the song Vilia which was sung while she sat on a moon and we heard nothing thank goodness the orchestra was so good. We did mention to the staff regarding the sound and this needs to be looked at as it left us disappointed. Not sure we like the modern twist of gents at the urinals and the leading ladies costumes appeared too modern compared to the rest.
