Why See Houston Ballet - The Merry Widow?
A Very Merry Widow Indeed!
Full of humor and joy, The Merry Widow is gloriously grand tale that takes us into the heart of the Belle Epoque in Europe, where the vast fortune of a young widow, Hanna Glawari, is highly sought after by suitors and politicians alike - the latter of whom wish to keep the riches in their small country. But for Hanna, money can't get her the one thing she desires above all - the love of her secret paramour!
Full of romance and revelry, this whimsical production from Houston Ballet will sweep you off your feet with its story, lavish sets and sumptuous costumes that accompany Hanna and her Count Danilo.
What is the story of the Merry Widow?
Paris, long ago - widow Hanna Glawari is resisting the attempts of Baron Zeta, the Grand Duchy, to force her into marriage with a potential suitor, therefore keeping her newly gained 20 million francs in the economy. Throwing every more glitzy parties and balls for Hanna, he settles on Danilo, a fine citizen of Pontevedro. But Danilo and Hanna have a history: he won't marry her for her money and she won't budge until she hears those three words spill from his lips...
