The Merry Widow

June 19 - 23, 2019

The National Ballet of Canada

Choreographer(s): Ronald Hynd

Artists of The National Ballet of Canada

A frothy blend of whimsical comedy, romance and the delights of the Parisian Belle Époque in all its effervescent splendor, The Merry Widow is popular ballet at its finest. Based on the 1905 operetta of the same name by Franz Lehár, The Merry Widow sets out to entertain and amuse at every step and never puts a foot wrong.

The Merry Widow has dozens of moments of pure delight… Unlike too much champagne, there is one indulgence that won’t leave you with any regrets the morning after.

- The Ottawa Citizen

As sensuous and finely balanced as an art nouveau vase.... with graceful adherence to the formula of story ballet, careful structure, stylish sets and costumes... and a slick orchestral reworking of the Franz Lehár score.
