The Merry Widow is a costumed and choreographed musical comedy, written by Austrian-Hungarian composer Franz Lehár. This story details the challenges of a rich widow whose community relies financially on her sizeable tax payments. To prevent her from re-marrying elsewhere and thus leaving the country, her fellow citizens attempt to pique her romantic interest in a local man.
