We're happy to report that The Merry Widow has a happy ending and the heroine Hanna Glawari, sung by Sally Dibblee, survives! (Less true for other productions this season.) Don't miss your chance to see this high-kicking musical comedy, at the Jubilee Oct. 24 (8 p.m.), Oct. 27 (7:30 p.m.), & Oct. 29 (7:30 p.m.)! 

Join the conversation! Before The Merry Widow opens on Oct. 24, check out additional content such as our interview with director Brent Krysa or our podcast with musicologist Stephan Bonfield. Plus, we've combined two good things into one — you can listen to the overture and view the scenery for this production in this video

Still curious about the production? Edmonton Opera staff, chorus artists and arts enthusiasts regularly engage on Twitter and Instagram using #eoWidow. 

Volunteer with Edmonton Opera

There are plenty of ways to give back to the opera! Donate your time during the run of The Merry Widow — we need front-of-house volunteers to help with tickets, wayfinding and selling 50/50 tickets on Oct. 24, 27 & 29. As a thank-you for their time, volunteers are able to see a performance free of charge.

Whether you love the opera or want to try it for the first time, our Explorers program offers $20 tickets (and a free drink during Tuesday performances) to audience members under the age of 29!

Plus, there's opera after the age of 29 — join our encore program (for ages 30 to 40) to receive a 20% discount on subscriptions and a free drink during Tuesday performances!
