Witty pranksters, straying spouses and lilting melodies — it’s the ultimate Viennese confection.

In Strauss’ beloved 1874 operetta, revenge for a cruel trick leads to a woman sending her lover to jail under her husband’s name, a man attempting to seduce his own wife (disguised as a Hungarian countess) and a chambermaid masquerading as a lady of quality. The complications get straightened out in a prison run by a drunken jailer, all to the sparkling music of the great Viennese master.
