Music by Richard Strauss
Give and love until the day we die.
Arabella is expected to marry for money to save her aristocratic parents from ruin, but she yearns for a soulmate. When she finally meets him, a case of mistaken identity leads to a mix-up that could ruin everything. Set amid the society parlors and costume balls of Vienna's golden age, Strauss' romantic comedy of errors is a touching fairy tale about youth, identity and love.
