About Opera Australia
Sway, smile and swoon your way through our delicious new production of The Merry Widow.
This “shimmering all-singing, all dancing Broadway style show” (The Age) is a frothy comedy packed with familiar waltzes and tuneful melodies.
It’s an opulent party, all glitz and glamour and Parisian charm. It’s an old-fashioned romance, flirty and funny and fabulous. It’s a Viennese waltz and you know all the steps.
From the sumptuous Art Deco era costumes to the stunning, geometric sets, the show is “visually stunning … sometimes you simply don’t know where to look” (The Age).
The vivacious Danielle de Niese plays the bubbly, beautiful Hanna: newly wealthy, newly widowed, and suddenly the hottest catch in town.
Graeme Murphy brings his signature brand of lively choreography and deft direction to the dance-packed score.
