REVIEWS
 
Landestheater Linz - Die Lustige Witwe - HANNA GLAWARI
Vocally, Judith Kuhn as Hanna Glawari is every bit his equal. Moreover, on stage, she is a lady, who knows how to dominate the scene just by her presence ( not only by her eye-catching costume), making credible that all men would be at her feet, if it wasn't for the money.
