The Merry Widow

Let’s waltz, let’s sway the night away.
It’s time for a little romance.

Sway, smile and swoon your way through our delicious production of The Merry Widow.

It’s an opulent party, all glitz and glamour and Parisian charm. It’s an old-fashioned romance, flirty and funny and fabulous. It’s a Viennese waltz and you know all the steps.

The Merry Widow is a “shimmering all-singing, all-dancing Broadway-style show” (The Sydney Morning Herald), a frothy comedy packed with familiar waltzes and tuneful melodies.

From the sumptuous Art Deco era costumes to the stunning, geometric sets, the show is “visually stunning … sometimes you simply don’t know where to look” (The Sydney Morning Herald).

Julie Lea Goodwin plays the bubbly, beautiful Hanna: newly wealthy, newly widowed, and suddenly the hottest catch in town. Expect sizzling chemistry with Alexander Lewis as her love interest Danilo Danilovich, as the pair reunite after their acclaimed season of West Side Story on Sydney Harbour.

Graeme Murphy brings his signature brand of lively choreography and deft direction to the dance-packed score.
