THE MERRY WIDOW
Unfortunately, due to Covid-19 restrictions, we were unable to perform The Merry Widow in March 2021 as planned. We are hoping now to perform in Spring 2022- confirmation and dates will follow. We also have a programme in the works beginning in Autumn 2021- further details to follow.
SACO presents a new English translation by Philip Salmon of Franz Lehar's extraordinary operetta.
Centred around the titular rich widow and her countrymen's attempt to keep her money in the principality by finding her the right husband, the work was based on an 1861 comedy play, L'attaché d'ambassade (The Embassy Attaché) by Henri Meilhac.
Directed by John Heath; conducted by David Ireson.
