A score as strong as iron filled with engaging rhythms and lyrical arias, and a swirling story full of spicy intrigues and comical plot twists. That was all Franz Lehár needed to create The Merry Widow, a operetta that was a box-office hit in 1905 and that still intrigues the imagination.

Hervé Niquet and François Pirette will doubtless add extra bells and whistles to his interpretation of this delightful operetta.
