The Merry Widow

Kelli O'Hara as Valencienne with the Grisettes
in Lehár's 'The Merry Widow'
 (Ken Howard/Metropolitan Opera)

Here is the New York Times review of the Merry Widow, televised to a theatre near you today.

My mother had a record of this opera and played it many times.  I know one of the songs so well that when Wyona hummed it over the phone to me yesterday the title of the song came to me:  Delia.

I was amused to read in the newspaper review that the correct name of the song is Vilja.

Oh well, I was close.
