Slightly confusing—but highly amusing, which is just what Vienna’s richest man has in mind for his party!

He’s hired a serious opera company and a troupe of comediennes—and insists that their shows take place simultaneously so his firework display can start promptly at nine! Sparks fly as the prima donna, who’s been jilted by her lover, emotes hysterically and decides to kill herself—only to have a saucy comedienne walk into her act to counsel her on the ease of finding another man!

With its gentle poke at “high art,” this is Strauss at his sophisticated best, replete with luscious melodies and vocal pyrotechnics galore.
