Die Nummer eins unter den Operetten schildert Lug und Trug um das Familienleben des Rentiers Gabriel von Eisenstein und seiner Frau Rosalinde. Eine fein gesponnene Intrige - von Eisensteins "Freund" Dr. Falke erdacht - lässt den untreuen Ehemann Eisenstein bei einem pompösen Fest des superreichen Prinzen Orlofsky auf seine Kosten kommen.
