Trinke, liebe, trinke schnell!

If you ever want to introduce someone to opera, show them this. It's certain to hold their interest and make them hungry for more. Sometimes it's sung, sometimes it's spoken, sometimes it's in German, sometimes French, or Italian, or English... Keep up if you can! It's fast-moving and downright hysterical.

Keep an eye out for a particularly delightful pair of performers during the cabaret in Act Two... No, I'm not talking about the dancers.
