The Australian Ballet's great classic hit returns, transforming Lehár's beloved operetta into a joyous celebration of dance

The Merry Widow is one of the Australian Ballet's greatest achievements – it premiered in 1975 and has been revived by popular demand every couple of years since then. It was adapted from Franz Lehár's operetta by Australian dance legend Ropert Helpmann and English choreographer Ronald Hynd. It's a visual feast but also features all of Lehár's gorgeously light and romantic melodies, played by the Australian Opera and Ballet Orchestra.
