The Merry Widowby Franz Lehár
Conducted by Ward Stare
Susan Graham sings the title role of the fabulous woman of the world who sets out to conquer glamorous old Paris and get the one thing that has eluded her: a commitment from her playboy first love.
The orchestral writing ranges from the grand to the elegant, and to surprisingly delicate touches that tell the audience what the characters hardly dare to express themselves. Lehár’s delightful score of lush waltzes and beautiful ballads sparkles under the baton of Ward Stare.
