Opera Viva returns with a new version of an old favourite, specially written for the company by our talented young Music Director, Melvin Tay.

The diplomats at the Pontevedrian Embassy in Paris love their fatherland, but they also love the pleasures of the famous Parisian night spot, Maxim's. But both of these delights might be ended if their richest citizen, the fabulously wealthy Madame Glavari, marries a foreigner and takes her wealth out of the country.

Well her former love, Danilo, tear himself away from the glamorous laides of Maxim's and win back her affections?

This opera combines comedy with some of the best loved operatic treats, such as the haunting 'Vilja' and 'The Merry Widow Waltz'
