Die lustige Witwe


The story goes that Die lustige Witwe is to be staged at the Royal Swedish Opera in Stockholm. The stressed-out opera director badly needs it to be a success and manages to sign up a celebrated opera diva and an uncompromising, egocentric director. A teenage romance blossoms once again and a competing production company lies in wait …

Loosely based on the original, comedian Henrik Dorsin and director Ole Anders Tandberg have created a Die lustige Witwe of our times, which was huge success at the Royal Swedish Opera when it premiered in 2017. In the role of the opera director Benny Zetterberg, actor Andreas T. Olsson, and court singer Elin Rombo as “Die lustige Witwe”. Everyone sings in Swedish!

Die lustige Witwe is Franz Lehár’s most famous work and has been an audience favourite since it made its debut in 1905, containing celebrated music such as the “Vilja song”, “You’ll find me at Maxim’s” and the “Die lustige Witwe Waltz”.
