About This Show

Set in Paris in1905, a three act comedy which includes a can-can at Chez Maxim’s. The plot centres around the past love affair between Madame Glavari (the wealthy widow of the title) and Count Danilovitsch – which becomes inextricably entailed with the appalling state of the Pontevedrian economy (they need her cash). Several sub-plots add to the drama – the Ambassador’s fondness for young females and his wife’s penchant for even younger men – all help to produce an evening of witty songs and lively music.

Sung in English
