The mother makes it plain that she has ambitions for her daughter and makes every effort to encourage the general. But it soon becomes clear that the young lady has other ideas; she is apparently attracted to the young Alpine officer. SCENE II—The Lake Back of the Inn (Presumably the ice comes close to the steps of the inn so that most of the action is supposedly on skates) Grande Valse The Misses Chappell, Cummings, Badertscher, Swift, Dodge, Vollmar, Riedel, White Danse Slavique The Misses Prosch, Treadwell, Gevurtz, Guhlke Pas Seul Miss Caccialanza Pas Seul Mr. Thorson Pas de Deux Miss Caccialanza and Mr. Christensen Variations Miss Caccialanza and Mr. Christensen Carnival Miss Caccialanza, Mr. Christensen, Miss Williams, Mr. Thorson and Ensemble STORY OF SCENE II—The "Skaters" make merry on the ice while onlookers applaud. The general and the young officer compete for the affections of the skating star while the mother hovers about trying to influence her daughter to accept the general. The young star makes her choice and everything ends happily.
