The London Coliseum will be putting on a production of Franz Lehar's comic masterpiece, The Merry Widow.
The operetta utilises a truly glamorous setting and a stream of memorable melodies, including the Vilja Song and Merry Widow Waltz, to tell the story of a wealthy young widow and Danilo, who's appetite for wine and women threatens to ruin their burgeoning romance through comedic misadventures.
