More about this event

Sung in English with English dialogue and projected English titles

CONDUCTED BY Tania Miller
Directed by Omer Ben Seadia

The Story:
The aristocrat Count Danilo is tasked with seducing and marrying a rich widow, Hanna Glawari, to prevent their small country’s economic collapse. Only one problem – he jilted her once before when they were childhood sweethearts.

The Production:
A blend of whimsical comedy, romance and the delights of Belle Époque Paris in all its effervescent splendor, The Merry Widow sets out to entertain and amuse at every pixie-booted step in a wonderfully lavish new staging by award-winning Israeli director Omer Ben Seadia.

WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT:
Brimming with fun, fashion and frivolity, as well as delightful dance numbers including the Can-Can, this delightful confection is the perfect antidote to the winter blues.

PERFECT IF YOU ENJOY:
The Pirates of Penzance, Die Fledermaus

Featuring the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra
