Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Merry Widow ballet is an adaptation of Franz Leh r's romantic operetta The Merry Widow (Die Lustige Witwe). John Lanchbery and Alan Abbott adapted the score of the operetta for ballet and retained the style of Leh r's orchestration. The arrangement includes the well-known tunes of the operetta - Vilja's Song Ich bin eine anstandige Frau and the Weibermarsch. This musical arrangement has been used for two ballets: the first was choreographed by Ronald Hynd for The Australian Ballet in 1975, while the second was choreographed by Veronica Paeper for CAPAB (since renamed the Cape Town City Ballet Company) in 1988.show more
