Some forthcoming events at the Arts Centre Theatres:

The Merry Widow

The Merry Widow is a delicious confection: a light-hearted look at love amid the champagne and glitter of Art Deco France. Ladies sweep into ballrooms in silk fishtail gowns, and dapper gents in suits and patent leather shoes kiss your hand and fill up your dance card. Melbourne-born international star Danielle de Niese (evening performances only) plays the beguiling widow, inadvertent heiress of a city's fortune after just eight days of marriage. Fearing the loss of their riches, the society set are determined that she must wed a local, and soon, before any foreigner catches her gaze. But she's got a history with the man they've got in mind, and to complicate matters, the widow isn't the only one turning heads. There's plenty of love to go around in this story of amorous encounters and elegant romance. Graeme Murphy brings his spirited choreography and direction to Lehár's charming operetta in a brand new production.

Opera Australia and Orchestra Victoria conducted by Vanessa Scammell.
