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.
