In the United States, PBS presented a  television broadcast of the San Francisco Opera production of Lehar's The Merry Widow on December 25, 2002, at 9 p.m. Eastern time on some stations.  The cast includes Yvonne Kenny as Anna Glawari, Bo Shovhus as Danilo, Angelika Kirchschlager as Valencienne, and Gregory Turay as Camille de Rosillon.

I enjoyed it very much.

"Everyone sings splendidly, and acts with gusto, while the two leading couples -- Dagmar Schellenberger and Rodney Gilfrey as Hanna and Danilo; Ute Gfrerer and Piotr Beczala as Valencienne and Camille -- are gorgeous and sexy to boot. Oh yes, they can dance too! With superb photography and easy-to-read English subtitles, this is one of the best ever transfers of a musical theater to the small screen. I watched it in one sitting and was sorry to see it end."--Robert Groan, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
