The Merry Widow is recorded live for cinemas on the Australian Ballet tour. The tiny principality of Pontevedro is on the verge of bankruptcy, and the dashing Count Danilo must rescue his country by marrying the newly widowed and fabulously wealthy Hanna Glawari. Only when they meet does he realise that she’s his childhood sweetheart – and that she hasn’t forgiven him for jilting her years ago. Created especially for the Australian Ballet, The Merry Widow is based on the beloved operetta and is set in the ballrooms and salons of Belle Époque Paris, dressed magnificently in velvets, silks, spangles and feathers.
