This San Francisco Opera production of Franz Lehár’s operetta The Merry Widow features Yvonne Kenny making her debut in the title role. It was also Lotfi Mansouri’s last production as the company’s General Director. The production includes new dialogue commissioned from Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Wendy Wasserstein, and a new ballet to set the “Chez Maxim” scene.

“The singing…is exceptionable. Indeed, Skovhus and Kirchschlager are especially splendid, their training and experience leavened with the right amount of vocal verve.” - Fanfare
