Lehar: Merry Widow - Highlights Sung in English (CD)

Although Sutherland and Bonynge gave many memorable performances of The Merry Widow on stage, they never recorded it completely. However, this recording – sung in English – offers a choice collection of the opera’s ‘greatest hits’, including "Vilja," the famous waltz and some of the big scenes in the operetta.

The Merry Widow (highlights)

A highly respectable wife … Look, now’s our chance
Gentlemen, no more
I’m off to Chez Maxime … My very heave Fatherland
Proceed. One girl has almond eyes
Ladies choice! Did you hear the welcome voice?
Vilja song – Let’s all now waken memories
Such a silly soldier boy … Heija! See the cavalry
Love in my heart was dying
This march should last at least a year
The Cake Walk
I was born by cruel fate
We’re the famous maxime playgirls
Love unspoken, Faith unbroken
