Madame Trentoni, famous Italian opera singer, is en route to New York to make her American debut. Captain Jinks, young dandy, wagers with two friends he can have a flirtation with her. When he first see her he's immediately smitten with true love. She falls for him too-- but complications ensue when she suspects he only pretends to love her to win his bet. The original play made a star of Ethel Barrymore as Madame Trentoni-who's actually from Trenton, N.J.! This delightful musical version incorporates many of the wonderful songs of the period which help make this fun show a delight from start to finish.
