Content:

At her elegant laundry and fine cleaners, Emma Neulechner receives a fatal letter from the innkeeper Sperl, who demands that the 500 guilders lent for the recent expansion of the business be repaid unless Gretl, Frau Neulechners pretty niece, is prepared to marry him. Gretl, for her part, has only the young composer Franz in mind; the latter is anxiously awaiting the result of a composers competition to which he has submitted his latest waltz. If he wins, he will win 1000 guilders, and there would be nothing to prevent his marrying Gretl. But his pockets are still empty at the moment, and when he arrives at the laundry with his friend Gustl, a relatively untalented and also poor music student, there is not enough money to pay for a laundry packet for Gustls girlfriend Mizzi, a capricious ballerina from the edge of town.
Then Schlafrock, servant to Johann Strauss, appears with a sack of the masters laundry. Much to Franzs dismay, Schlafrock proudly announces that his master is also participating in the composition competition. Gustl meanwhile secretly copies a wonderful waltz melody from a pair of cuffs on which the Viennese Waltz King loved to notate his musical sketches. The cuffs end up in the kettle full of boiling water and the clever Gustl sells the manuscript paper with the stolen waltz to the music-loving Count Dolgoruczky; the Count is considering passing this off as his own composition
