Set in Paris in1905, a three act comedy which includes a can-can at Chez Maxim's. The plot centres around the past love affair between Madame Glavari (the wealthy widow of the title) and Count Danilovitsch - which becomes inextricably entailed with the appalling state of the Pontevedrian economy (they need her cash). Several sub-plots add to the drama - the Ambassador's fondness for young females and his wife's penchant for even younger men - all help to produce an evening of witty songs and lively music. Sung in English.Performers Rebecca Caine (Hanna Glawari), Philip Salmon (Count Danilowitsch), Nicholas Ransley (Camille de Rosillon), Charlotte Page (Valencienne), Ian Caddy (Baron Zeta), Oliver White (Njegus), Andrew Friedhoff (Raoul de Saint-Brioche), John Lofthouse (Vicomte Cascada), Graham Stone (Kromow), Susan Parkes (Olga), Benjamin Segal (Bogdanowitsch), Stefan Holmstrom (Pritschitsch), Annalise Whittlesea (Sylviane), Louise Crane (Praskowia), Samantha Paige (Lolo), Nichola Jolley (Dodo), Rachel Harland (Jou-Jou), Karen Aspinall (Frou-Frou), Gemma Zirfas (Clou-Clou), Jane Quinn (Margot).
