Opera Bohemia 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 vocal talent, including Catriona Clark, Douglas Nairne, Marie Claire Breen and Andrew McTaggart. John Wilkie directs Bohemia’s first operetta. Alistair Digges conducts a special arrangement for chamber orchestra. The Merry Widow is full of iconic and stunning Viennese melodies, including show stopping numbers, Vilja, The Merry Widow Waltz and Chez Maxim’s’altz.
