Opera Bohemia, Scotland’s professional touring company celebrates its 10th anniversary with one of the world’s best loved operettas, The Merry Widow by Franz Lehár.
Set in the romantic city of Paris, various suitors squabble and fight to win the hand of the recently widowed, but very wealthy Hannah Glawari.
The production will showcase some of Scotland’s finest young professional talent, including Catriona Clark, Douglas Nairne, Marie Claire Breen and Andrew McTaggart. John Wilkie creates a magical new production designed by Alisa Kalyanova, with Alistair Digges conducting a special arrangement for chamber orchestra.
The Merry Widow is full of iconic and stunning Viennese melodies, including show stopping numbers like ‘Viljah', 'The Merry Widow Waltz' and ‘Chez Maxim's'.
