In 'The Merry Widow,' a prince from a small kingdom courts a wealthy widow to keep her money in the country. Don't miss this collaboration between the Ralph Opera Center and the CSU Sinfonia Orchestra!

Colorado State University’s Ralph Opera Center, along with the CSU Sinfonia Orchestra, presents The Merry Widow by Franz Lehár.

Tickets are available at the University Center for the Arts (UCA) Ticket Office in the UCA Griffin Lobby, by phone at (970) 491-2787, or Womens Vavazou Patent Leather Sandals Christian Louboutin sLb4sf7Q


Youth tickets must be purchased in person at the Ticket Office. Advance purchase is recommended to avoid at-the-door fees.

The Merry Widow tells the story of a rich widow, Hanna Glawari, and her countrymen’s attempt to keep her money in the principality by finding her the right husband. Count Danilo Danilovitsch, who was once in love with a penniless Hanna before her marriage, vies for her affection, but his efforts ignite a back-and-forth war of the roses.

This romantic comedy is filled with twists and turns that will keep the audience on the edge of their seats.

CSU’s production, performed in English, is directed by Tiffany Blake , Ph.D., and conducted by Wes Kenney .

“I chose this piece because it is a great fit for the voices we have in our program,” noted CSU director of opera Tiffany Blake.

“It is an ensemble show, so it also gives a lot of students the opportunity to perform. Aside from these more practical reasons, it is an entertaining piece with beautiful music.”

The Merry Widow is a great first-time opera experience. Because it is an operetta, it includes musical numbers bridged by spoken dialogue. Resembles musical theater in structure, it is often a more familiar form to first-time opera goers, but also proves a classic favorite for the seasoned opera aficionado.

In addition to the accessible format, CSU is putting a more modern twist on the original production. Franz Lehár’s original script sets the story in Paris during the early 1900s, but CSU’s production will be set in the 1920s.

“The 20s were a time of beautiful design, both in terms of architecture and clothing, so it afforded the design team lots of opportunity to create something beautiful on stage,” said Blake.

“The post-WWI era was also a time of breaking boundaries and enjoying life, so the atmosphere of going to clubs (like Maxim's in the operetta) and living the life of a playboy like the main character Danilo, was a good parallel.”

To achieve this 1920s look, Taylor Webster, CSU’s master carpenter and theatre program alumna, worked closely with Blake.

Destination unknown


2010 marks the third year of performances for Carnivàle Lune Bleue after critically acclaimed appearances in the Ottawa area in 2008 and 2009.

Inspired by the magic, mysticism, mystery and captivating allure of travelling carnivals from the 1930′s, Carnivàle Lune Bleue is an all-senses escape to another time and place.

Step beyond the brightly-lit front gate of Carnivàle Lune Bleue and become immediately immersed and entirely engrossed in a colourful, gritty, authentic, surreal and frequently bizarre all-evening entertainment extravaganza.

Shimmering lights illuminate a movie-like setting and lead the way through a magical night time journey that promenades through a vintage midway with vintage rides, tempting skill-testing games, remarkable reptiles, a museum of monstrosities, curiousities and myths and, so much more.

Sights, sounds and sensual aromas abound. Performance artists with spectacular, scary and seductive talents await to astound audiences with amazing shows. Culinary creations that pay homage to the cuisine of a bygone carnival era are served up to tantalize taste buds.

From Dreams To Reality

Carnivàle Lune Bleue is a dream come true for one man with an exciting vision, for all the behind-the-scenes folks who helped with its creation, and for the thousands who experienced the magic and mysticism first hand.

Before it made its debut in 2008 Carnivàle Lune Bleue was painstakingly planned, researched and prepared over several years, from conception to reality. Visionary and Founder, Wayne Van De Graaff, is a carnival enthusiast who has, for many years, been fascinated with the dream of reviving an authentic old-style carnival. With Carnivàle Lune Bleue, his dream has become a reality.

operetta continued into the twentieth century, with works by composers such as Edward German, Lionel Monckton, and Harold Fraser-Simson—but increasingly these took on features of musical comedy until the distinction between an "old fashioned musical" and a "modern operetta" became very blurred indeed. Old fashioned British musicals, in particular, retained an "operetta-ish" flavor well into the 1950s. More modern operettas include Candide and, some would claim, musicals like Brigadoon .

A late twentieth century renewal of the importance of recitative and serious musical composing developed in rock operas such as Andrew Lloyd Webber's Jesus Christ, Superstar, Evita, and Phantom of the Opera have rearranged the elements of opera, operetta and musical theater in yet another way, yielding works with music more like an operetta than a musical, serious plot lines more typical of a standard opera than an operetta, yet performed primarily by artists with musical theater backgrounds, in musical theater venues.

A scene from Ralph Benatsky's operetta, .

The exact structure of an operetta is difficult to pin down, mostly because of its loose definition. It is useful, however, to point out some of the things that define the differences between an operetta, a Broadway-style musical and a standard opera. In an opera, the Womens Joan Leather Slide Sandals Saint Laurent 5WQn3u
is carried along by the music and singing. Operas usually emphasize an epic, grand style, with more emphasis on singing than acting. Operettas, on the other hand, tend to have dialogue broken up by musical numbers. An operetta is almost casual in comparison, and the singing style is very different. Many operettas can be performed by average or fair singers, whereas most operas cannot.

Operetta does not ask much of its audience, in contrast with opera, which is often hard to understand unless one is familiar with the story beforehand. Operettas are romantic, and nearly always promise a happy ending. The score is accessible and soaring, with the tenor and soprano taking center stage and a supporting cast that includes comedians and a large male chorus. The setting is often an exotic European country or a mythic utopia—or often, a combination of the two. And the plots usually center around aristocratic, farcical, love stories.
