The premiere of this production was in June 2006. This will be the second performance of this production. We can represent six great singers for the main roles. Alexander Joel is a distinguished conductor and has been very active notably in Germany with wide repertoire. Otsuki Takashi, a young rapidly rising tenor, is cast as Alfred. This is a well balanced and suitable cast to celebrate the new year.


Afternoon of the last day of the year. Gabriel von Eisenstein, staying with his wife Rosalinde at their villa outside Vienna, is angry: a mistake by his attorney is about to land him in jail. But at the urging of his friend Dr. Falke, he is secretly headed that evening for a ball at Prince Orlofsky's mansion, giving his wife the pretext that he is turning himself in at the jail. At the elegant ball, following Falke's instructions, Einstein has disguised himself as someone else; he flirts with a beautiful masked woman, not realizing it is his wife. Reporting to jail the next morning, Einstein accuses Rosalinde, who has also come running to the jail, of adultery. But she pulls out the watch he had given the masked woman the night before, and he is caught red-handed. Falke, the mastermind of this farce, now appears, and there is a grand finale-blaming it all on champagne.
