Prince Orlofsky's costume ball-the most coveted invitation of the year-drives the action of this urbane farce by Johann Strauss. Captivating serenades, a famous Hungarian csárdás, and, of course, lilting waltzes, permeate the luscious score from the "Waltz King." A stylish deco-inspired setting adds to the witty, sophisticated fun.
Sung in English.
