The Merry Widow (Die Lustige Witwe) had its premiere at Vienna's Theater an der Wien in 1905. Franz Lehár’s impressive entry into the world of operettas unexpectedly with The Merry Widow gave rise to a second resurgence of the genre. Often called “The Queen of Operettas”, this is certainly the most celebrated and successful show of its kind ever written.
