Why See National Ballet of Canada - The Merry Widow?
A Very Merry Widow indeed!
Revelry and romance abound in this delightful adaptation of Franz Lehar's giddy opera, staged with verve by the National Ballet of Canada.

Waltzingly whimsical and full of schemes, disguises and gaiety, let yourself be swept away by this glorious story, replete with the company's wonderful talents and high design values.

Throwing lavish parties and balls for Hanna, he settles on Danilo, a fine citizen of Pontevedro. But Danilo and Hanna have a history: he won't marry her for her money and she won't budge until she hears those three words spill from his lips...

Come From Away
From the beginning of the pounding percussion line, the energy in the theatre was palpable. I've never felt anything like it!
Until Feb 24, 2019
I am so proud that these songs will now be reinterpreted for stage, and am honored by the team that is helping bring this music to life. I'm thrilled that Canada will see the world premiere of our brand-new musical, Jukebox Hero, in 2018.
