A new production of The Merry Widow is now performing at the Sydney Opera House.
Travellers taking flights to Sydney this month will be able to see a new production of The Merry Widow, which is opening in the city.
The Franz Lehar production tells the story of the wealthy widow Hanna Glawari, who the financiers and diplomats of Pontevedro are desperate to keep in the country in order to stop it from going bankrupt.
As well as convincing her to stay, there is the matter of setting her up with Baron Zeta, although to everyone but Hanna and the lofty idealist Danilo, it is obvious where her real affections lie.
The production is set to run at the Opera House until November 4th 2011, with Amelia Farrugia and David Hobson taking on the show’s lead roles.
For those on flights to Sydney who prefer the great outdoors, Glynn Jacobs, project manager at visitoutbacknsw.com, recently recommended heading into the outback to explore the stunning landscape.
