The librettists, Viktor Léon and Leo Stein, based the story on the comedy L'attaché d'ambassade (The Embassy's Attaché) by Henri Meilhac. This well-known operetta has enjoyed international success since its 1905 premiere in Vienna.
Hanna Glawari is a wealthy young widow from a small and poverty-stricken Balkan province of Pontevedro. Ambassador Baron Zeta is anxious that when Hanna re-marries, she will surely have to marry a Pontevedrian, not a Frenchman, to save his beloved Pontevedro from a devastating ruin by keeping all her money inside the country.
