On New Year’s Eve, Gabriel von Eisenstein is sent to jail for punching a police officer; however, he decides to evade jail for one night to attend Prince Orlofsky’s lavish party. His wife, Rosalinde, gets wind of his scheme and follows him to the ball in disguise as a Hungarian countess. Adele, their maid, also feigns an excuse to be released from work that night so she can go to the ball disguised as a Russian actress named Olga. Mistaken identities abound and frivolity ensues.

Presented fully staged with full orchestra.
