Live Broadcast of 'The Merry Widow' at Cape Henlopen High School Theater
Presented by the Rehoboth Beach Film Society and the Cape Henlopen Educational Foundation.
Rehoboth Beach Film Society and the Cape Henlopen Educational Foundation will present The Metropolitan Opera’s live broadcast of Franz Lehár’s “The Merry Widow” on January 17 at the Cape Henlopen High School Theater. The great Renée Fleming stars as the femme fatale who captivates all Paris in Lehár’s enchanting operetta. In a new staging by Broadway virtuoso director and choreographer Susan Stroman (“The Producers,” “Oklahoma!,” “Contact”), Stroman, a Delaware native, and her design team have created an art-nouveau setting that climaxes with singing and dancing at the legendary Maxim’s. Nathan Gunn co-stars as Danilo, Kelli O’Hara is Valencienne and Sir Andrew Davis conducts. In addition to the opera performance, the HD series features live interviews with Met opera stars and crew members while showing behind-the-scene workings.
