Met Live in HD: The Merry Widow

Saturday, January 17, 2015 - 1:00pm
Mary D'Angelo Performing Arts Center

The great Renée Fleming stars as the beguiling femme fatale who captivates all of Paris in Lehár’s enchanting operetta, live from New York’s Metropolitan Opera. In this new production, Broadway virtuoso director and choreographer Susan Stroman (The Producers, Oklahoma!, Contact) and her design team of Julian Crouch (Satyagraha, The Enchanted Island) and costume designer William Ivey Long (Cinderella, Grey Gardens, Hairspray) have created an art-nouveau setting that climaxes with singing and dancing grisettes at the legendary Maxim’s. Nathan Gunn co-stars as Danilo and Kelli O’Hara is Valencienne. Andrew Davis conducts.
