Abstract

Gabriel von Eisenstein has to report to prison to start a week's sentence for insulting a police officer. His friend Dr. Falke persuades him to spend his last night of freedom at a ball given by Prince Orlofsky. In reality, however, Dr. Falke is planning revenge for a prank Eisenstein had played on him, and initiates Eisentstein's wife Rosalinde and her maid Adele into the plot.
