About

In few words:

A ball at the Pontevedrian Embassy in Paris is the scene of political and romantic intrigue. The fortune of widow Hanna Glawari needs to remain on Pontevedrian soil and a marriage with her fellow countryman, Count Danilo, would guarantee the country’s stability. An ideal match but not the easiest to secure… Underpinning a whirlwind plot never far removed from dance, Franz Lehár’s score, in true Viennese tradition, displays a degree of orchestral and melodic refinement rarely attained in operetta. Waltzes, mazurkas and polkas set the pace in a production that, transposed to the 1920s, celebrates the splendours of a bygone world whilst raising the curtain on its fragility.
