The Muses Project to present ‘The Merry Widow’ in Septem­ber

The Sentinel-Record - - ARTS, ETC. -

The Muses Project will present a fully staged pro­duc­tion of Franz Le­har’s op­eretta “The Merry Widow” in Hot Springs and Hot Springs Vil­lage be­gin­ning Sept. 15.

Show­times are 7 p.m. Sept. 15 at the Wood­lands Au­di­to­rium, Hot Springs Vil­lage, and 6 p.m. Sept. 16 and 3 p.m. Sept. 17 at the Muses Cul­tural Arts Cen­ter, 428 Or­ange St.

The show high­lights the tal­ents of the Muses Per­for­mance Troupe, a dy­namic cast of 42 local and na­tion­ally tour­ing pro­fes­sional singers, dancers, in­stru­men­tal­ists, and stu­dents from the Arkansas School for Math­e­mat­ics, Sciences, and the Arts, a news re­lease said.

“The Merry Widow,” sung in English and set in glam­orous turn of the cen­tury Paris, de­picts a world of ro­man­tic in­trigue and com­pli­ca­tions, ele­gant silli­ness, and ex­quis­ite and time­less mu­sic. This beloved mas­ter­piece cap­tures the care­free spirit of the Vi­en­nese op­eretta, where af­fairs of state very of­ten dou­ble as love af­fairs. The Muses pro­duc­tion of “The Merry Widow” has all the beauty and charm of “Hello Dolly” blended with the tune­ful elegance and grace of the Vi­en­nese waltz, the re­lease said.

Tick­ets are $35. All artists, teach­ers, and stu­dents are ad­mit­ted free, but must call the Muses to regis­ter. Call 609-9811 or visit www.the­mus­espro­ject.org for tick­ets or in­for­ma­tion.
