An enjoyable romp - Lehar: Die Lustige Witwe review by DW

Spoiler Alert
21/08/2018

It's many years since I've seen a live production of Lehar's operetta so I welcomed the opportunity to have a look at this Zurich Opera offering. The music remains joyful, lightweight but always tuneful and was extremely well sung, as one would expect from Zurich. The staging was well-managed and the sometimes lengthy dialogue passages were kept to a swift pace, and even possibly edited, so they didn't overwhelm the musical content.
