A Tribute to Marta Eggerth and Jan Kiepura

The event will celebrate the life and careers of Marta Eggerth and Jan Kiepura. Together, the couple appeared in over 2,000 performances of The Merry Widow—Eggerth portraying Hanna, the wealthy widow, and Kiepura singing the role of her suitor, Count Danilo.
