This quintessential Viennese comic operetta is set in opulent turn-of-the-century Vienna revolves around a pair of friends engaging in a fierce battle of pranks, a beautiful wife who’s contemplating infidelity, and her maid, who wants nothing more than to be an actress. Their schemes cleverly intertwine at a grand New Year’s Eve ball — with plenty of waltzing, of course — and end up in prison where Champagne is blamed for all. This fully-staged opera and cast of 25 singers and 25 musicians will welcome you back into the world of live entertainment!
