The Merry Widow

Date/Time: 24 October 2014, 8.00pm

The Singapore Lyric Opera will be performing Vienna definitive romantic operetta -- The Merry Widow

Written by Franz Lehar and staged in the dawn of the 20th century, the "Die Lustige Witwe" (the merry widow) is a big hit. Well yes, business was shaky a bit for the first month or so, but word of mouth soon brings packed houses. Months over months, theatres were packed full even during the hot summer periods (remember that this is the pre-air-con era).

You can get an idea of the plot from this site:

P.S. For those who are curious, this is an operetta, which is a genre of light opera. Light in terms of both music and subject matter (copied and paste from Wikipedia) - It is usually humorous with typically, spoken dialogue.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
