When wine, women and song unite!
When wine, women and song unite at Prince Orlofsky’s masked ball, elaborate plots are uncorked and romantic assignations go astray. At the epicenter of it all is Gabriel von Eisenstein, disguised as suave “Monsieur Renard” and blissfully unaware that the piquant Hungarian countess he is wooing is actually his own wife, Rosalinde. By daybreak the party guests are all at the city jail, where the von Eisensteins find their passion for each other rekindled and everyone is free to leave…after a final chorus in honor of champagne, of course!
