Lehar's The Merry Widow

Centennial Hall - 8pm

Franz Lehar's glittering Merry Widow offers an imperishable bouquet of fresh melodic blossoms, which adorn a story at once romantic, exotic, and touchingly nostalgic. Pontevedro, that 19th Century middle European never-never land has peopled its Paris embassy with ever-young, almost over-civilized aristocrats, as pompous as they are sophisticated, as silly as they surely are endearing, and all capable of bursting into ingratiating, unforgettable lyricism at the drop of a glove of a fan. A brilliant, attractive young cast of Canadians joins the wonderful UWO choruses and London Pro Musica, to bring you a delectable evening.
