One week until The Merry Widow opens!

Only one week to go! Our production of The Merry Widow opens at the Queen Mother Theatre in Hitchin next Wednesday and runs until Saturday 8th October. Widow is full of glorious music, intrigue, waltzing and even a rip-roaring Can Can.
"Beautiful Anna’s late husband has left her a very rich woman. She’s so rich that the economy of Pontevedro depends on her marrying a local — so Baron Zeta springs into action with the help of his wife, Valencienne, to find Anna the right husband. It’s a tricky affair because Zeta wants it to be Count Danilo, an old flame, who has no intention of giving up bachelorhood, not with the Grisettes from Maxim’s around. Valencienne proposes Camille (who fancies Valencienne!) Rendezvous are rampant! Complications abound! Reputations are at stake and in the middle is poor Njegus, the Baron’s secretary, trying to prevent embarrassment all around. So who wins Anna’s heart? You’ll have to come and find out…."
Here is a little taster of some of the wonderful music Lehar wrote for Widow. Name that tune!
