Example text

But the trajectory of Hanna and Danilo’s reconciliation does not in itself provide a fully satisfactory romantic trajectory within the established idioms of romantic musical theater. The ardor against a perhaps feigned resistance and the interplay between the dangerous unknown and the safely known— that is, the emblems of a romance in its early stages—are part of their prehistory and not relived except through the mediation of their parable songs. Camille and Valencienne, however, provide precisely this dimension of romance and disappear as a romantic couple only as—and precisely when— the viability of Hanna and Danilo as a romantic pairing is proven.

3 CHAPTER ONE that she loses her fortune only because it devolves to her husband. Danilo accepts this news with some resignation, but is content that he has proven he loves her and not her money, while she has proven her desire to wed for love rather than money. Resolution is nearly complete: Pontevedro is saved; Zeta and Valencienne reconcile; and Danilo, still unable to confess his love for Hanna in words, lets “The Merry Widow Waltz” say it for him. The scenario and musical structures of The Merry Widow deftly lay out a number of landscapes, the subtleties of which are often lost when they are tampered with.

Indeed, part of what makes this waltz so satisfying is its fairly systematic conversion of the early tune’s poignancies into something more comfortably assured. From the beginning, the open-ended gesture of “Vilja” is absorbed into a more compact waltz idiom, the opening four-note phrase repeats, reaches benignly up a half step (thus departing from the eerie pentatonicism of “Vilja”), and immediately cycles back down to begin again. Meanwhile, the waltz idiom returns us to the moment at the end of Act I, when Hanna and Danilo are virtually compelled by the waltz to come together as a couple, if only for the duration of the dance.
