To begin its spring season, MOT will produce a rollicking operetta, The Merry Widow. The operetta concerns a wealthy widow, Hanna Glawari, whose wealth, if she decides to remarry, will be transferred to her next husband. Her countrymen aim to keep her money in the country by meddling to find her the right local suitor. Romantic, lilting waltzes accompany the characters as they scramble to keep Hanna from falling for a foreign man.
