Man-about-town Eisenstein is supposed to report to jail, his wife Rosalinde will stay home for the night and their maid Adele needs to visit a sick aunt. Yet all three turn up in disguise at Count Orlofsky’s extravagant masked ball. The champagne flows as the waltzes play. Mistaken identities and heavy flirting lead to a night, and an early morning, of hilarity.

American tenor Alex McKissick sings Eisenstein and baritone Ben McAteer (Don Pasquale 2023) is Dr Falke. The ensemble cast also includes soprano Megan O’Neill and tenors Aaron O’Hare and William Pearson.
