Susan returns to the Metropolitan Opera for The Merry Widow

This December and January, Susan Graham returns to the Metropolitan Opera to reprise her account of the title character in Susan Stroman’s staging of Lehár’s The Merry Widow. Susan stars as the glamorous and desirable Parisian widow Hanna Glawari – she leads with Andriana Chuchman as Valencienne, Paul Groves as Danilo, Sir Thomas Allen as Baron Mirko Zeta, and David Portillo and Taylor Stayton as Camille de Rosillon.

When Susan originally starred in the same production in 2015, The New York Times, admiring her “clear and eloquent” tone, declared:

“A straightforward, straight-talking presence, her Hanna … has no pretensions and no illusions. But Ms. Graham’s reserved, silky voice also gives the character a romantic side, as in her dreamy version of the celebrated ‘Vilja Song.’”

Susan celebrated the 25th anniversary of her Met debut last season, as one of three honorees – together with Ben Heppner and Deborah Voigt – at the Metropolitan Opera Guild’s 82nd Annual Luncheon. She also helped celebrate the Met’s own 50th anniversary at Lincoln Center, in company with other great exponents of the genre from around the world. Susan performs in The Merry Widow on December 14, 16, 20, 23, 27 & 30, 2017, and January 2, 5 & 11, 2018.
