Space Coast Symphony Orchestra presents…
LEHAR The Merry Widow
Light Opera of Orlando
Your Space Coast Symphony Orchestra partners with Light Opera Orlando to present a staged production of one of the world’s most famous operettas, Franz Lehár’s “The Merry Widow.” Lehár’s beloved operetta The Merry Widow tells a fizzy tale of star-crossed lovers and political shenanigans in a fantastical Paris. Baron Zeta of Pontevedro must prevent the wealthy widow Hanna Glawari from marrying a foreigner; if she does, all of her wealth will leave Pontevedro, thus bankrupting the country. Will Hanna’s former flame Count Danilovich—a debonair rake—win her heart again, or will she choose a flirtatious Frenchman instead? Farce, romance and jealousy abound in this sparkling romp. This comedic gem will captivate you with its lavish parties, lilting waltzes and beautiful love songs.
