BUEI Auditorium, 40 Crow Lane, Pembroke. Saturday, 3 February 2018 Lehar's Merry Widow
Lehár's effervescent operetta The Merry Widow stars soprano Renée Fleming as Hanna, the widowed Pontevedrian millionairess. Sir Andrew Davis conducts the stellar cast that also includes baritone Nathan Gunn as Hanna's lover, Danilo; tenor Alek Shrader as the young nobleman, Camille de Rosillon; and baritone Sir Thomas Allen as the scheming Baron Zeta. Broadway star Kelli O'Hara, best known for her acclaimed performances in South Pacific and The Light in the Piazza, makes her highly-anticipated Met debut as the Baron's coquettish wife, Valencienne. The delightful operetta will be performed in English, in a new translation by Jeremy Sams. Lehár's best-known composition has been an audience favorite since its 1905 premiere and features a great deal of well-known music, including the Vilja Song, "Then Off to Chez Maxim," and the "Merry Widow Waltz."
