Summary: Opera Columbus' version of The Merry Widow leaves the political Paris satire and gives it a modern twist. This show is a farce of the bumblings of small-time, ineffective mobsters in Columbus who report to Don Mondo, the big-time mob boss living in Chicago. The beautiful young widow Hanna is being sought after by all the men around her in order to share her fortune. This is a hilarious, zany, tangled love story with catchy tunes and dancing girls!
