The Merry Widow

Approximate running time 2 hrs. 45 min.

Susan Graham stars as the beguiling woman who captivates all Paris in Lehár's enchanting operetta, seen in a new staging by Broadway virtuoso director and choreographer Susan Stroman (The Producers, Oklahoma!, Contact). Stroman and her design team of Julian Crouch (Satyagraha, The Enchanted Island) and William Ivey Long (Cinderella, Grey Gardens, Hairspray) have created an art-nouveau setting that climaxes with singing and dancing grisettes at the legendary Maxim's. Rod Gilfry co-stars as Danilo, Stephen Costello is Camille, and Fabio Luisi conducts.
