Description Australian-born international star Danielle de Niese plays the beguiling widow, inadvertant 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
