A lyric comedy in three acts by Richard Strauss. The Count and Countess Waldner are constantly short of money and try to marry off their daughter Arabella to the wealthy Mandryka. For economic reasons they raise their second daughter Zdenka as a boy. But she is in love with young Matteo, and passes herself off before him as her own sister. Complications and accusations abound within the household, until finally both sisters are each united with their true love.
