'The Merry Widow' Operetta at Flagler; College Site of Jacksonville Lyric Opera Presentation


An international group of almost four dozen singers, dancers and musicians will perform the operetta The Merry Widow this weekend at Flagler College.

The Merry Widow is set in Paris in 1900.

It tells the story of a love affair between a commoner and a count in the Balkan State of Pontevedro.

When the count's family ends the relationship, commoner Anna marries, and when he dies she becomes the wealthiest widow in the state.

She again meets the count, who has since moved to Paris.

The presentation by the Jacksonville Lyric Opera will be performed in English at 8 p.m. Saturday.

The Merry Widow was first performed in America in 1907 in New York, and is known for such songs as Women, Women, Women, Vilia and Love Unspoken (The Merry Widow Waltz).

Tickets are $20 for adults and $5 for students and available by calling (904) 797-2800.
