Watching An Australian Opera and Touring Sydney Opera House #htcescapade @sydney_sider @AnnaJMcDougall #htcevo3d #htc

The diplomats are desperate, the financiers are flapping and the markets are melting down. Only one thing can save the Kingdom of Pontevedro from imminent bankruptcy. Someone must marry the glamorous and very wealthy widow, Hanna Glawari! The Merry Widow waltzes into town in a flurry of ball gowns and fans, top hats and tails. Giles Havergal directs this an eye-catching new production that combines nineteenth-century glamour with twenty-first century artistry. At the heart of The Merry Widow is a love story.

Will this obstinately unromantic couple ever get together?
