Description


Victorian Lyric Opera will present a new English adaptation of Franz Lehár’s The Merry Widow (Lustige Witwe) at the F. Scott Fitzgerald Theatre in Rockville, Maryland, on select days, February 23-March 4.  The fully-staged operetta, with full orchestra accompaniment, will feature “glamorous costumes, white tie and tails, waltzes, beautiful music and hilarious antics.”  
    It’s the witty tale of a wealthy widow from a minor European nation who reunites with her former lover while on a tour.  The two lovers have a disagreement, and everyone around them becomes involved.   Their little nation’s economic future “hangs on the outcome!”  
    The operetta will be performed in English in an adaptation by Quade Winter.
