Australian Ballet - The Merry Widow (cert U tbc)
Thursday 20th September at 7pm & & Monday 24th September at 1pm

Recorded live in front of a theatre audience.

Run length: 114mins with 20min interval.

The tiny principality of Pontevedro is on the verge of bankruptcy, and the dashing Count Danilo must rescue his country by marrying the newly widowed and fabulously wealthy Hanna Glawari. Only when they meet does he realise that she’s his childhood sweetheart – and that she hasn’t forgiven him for jilting her years ago. Based on the beloved operetta, this lively tale is set in the ballrooms and salons of Belle Epoque Paris and is dressed magnificently in velvets, silks, spangles and feathers.

Created especially for The Australian Ballet, The Merry Widow is a laugh-along favourite with hum-along melodies and its heart on its sleeve.

Tickets - £17 Full, £15 Concession and £13 QUAD Members.
