Highlights from Franz Lehar’s masterpiece operetta

“The Merry Widow” 

The music of Franz Lehár’s classic comes to life on stage with the countrymen of a wealthy widow scheming to keep her money in the principality by finding her “the right” husband. The operetta has enjoyed extraordinary international success since its 1905 premiere in Vienna. Well known music from the score includes “Villia”, “You’ll Find Me at Maxim’s”, and the “Merry Widow Waltz.”

Various films have been made which are based, very loosely, on the plot of the operetta – two of the films were pre-talkie silents.
