Make the most of your Sydney Opera House experience and see the newest production of Franz Lehár’s The Merry Widow! Melbourne-born international star Danielle de Niese plays the beguiling widow, inadvertent heiress of a city's fortune after just eight days of marriage. Fearing the loss of their riches, the society set are determined that she must wed a local, and soon, before any foreigner catches her gaze. But she's got a history with the man they've got in mind, and to complicate matters, the widow isn't the only one turning heads. There's plenty of love to go around in this story of amorous encounters and elegant romance. Graeme Murphy brings his spirited choreography and direction to Lehár's charming operetta. Enjoy a delicious meal at the many harborside restaurants before or after seeing The Merry Widow and take fabulous photos on the steps with the Opera House sails in the background.
