MUSICA VIVA PRESENTS OPERETTA “THE MERRY WIDOW”
6 December, 2019 - 8 December, 2019
Die Lustige Witwe (The Merry Widow) is a three-act operetta composed by the Austro-Hungarian composer Franz Lehár in 1905. It has been universally recognised as one of the most glorified masterpieces within the operetta repertoire. The libretto, based on a French comedy, is full of crafty twists and turns. Yet it does not shy away from showing the romantic Parisian atmosphere flavoured with exotic Balkan charms.
This adaptation of The Merry Widow is produced and directed by “Father of Western Opera in Hong Kong ”. Prof. Lo Kingman. Lio Kuokman , who was praised by the Philadelphia Enquirer as a “startling conducting talent,” will be leading as music director and conductor. Based on the previous production in 1998, Prof. Lo has reworked the whole operetta to bring more relevant dialogues, costumes and set designs to the Hong Kong audience.
