THE PLAY’S PATH



F. LEHÁR "THE MERRY WIDOW"

Grand Duchy of Pontevedro is on a brink of bankruptcy. It can be saved only with millions of beautiful widow, Hanna Glawari. But bad luck decides that instead of staying home she goes to Paris where she decides to give herself over to big city diversions. There appears a danger she’ll marry a foreigner what means the end of the duchy. The Ambassador of Pontevedro, baron Zeta, decides to take matters into his hands. Looking for a new husband for widow Glawari he founds Danilo Danilovitsch, who seems to be the perfect candidate. Still it turns out that between he and Hanna were once the affection that forbids him to make advances to her…

There is no more famous operetta duetts than "Lips Stay Silent" coming from "The Merry Widow". Anegdoct says this whole work was a coincidence – from literary inspiration (libretto was written after comedy play by Henri Meilhac, "L'Attaché d’ambassade") through choice of composer and setting of a title. It doesn’t change the fact that Francis Lehár’s work until present day stays one of the most important ones in history of a genre.
