La Veuve joyeuse

A score as strong as iron filled with engaging rhythms and lyrical arias, and a swirling story full of spicy intrigues and comical plot twists. That was all Franz Lehár needed to create The Merry Widow, a operetta that was a box-office hit in 1905 and that still intrigues the imagination. Hervé Niquet will doubtless add extra bells and whistles to his interpretation of this delightful operetta.

Due to circumstances beyond our control, the role of the narrator during the "La Veuve Joyeuse" concert will be interpreted by Lieven Debrauwer (instead of François Pirette).
