WARNING!! MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS!!
The impoverished aristocrat Florestan must marry an heiress or end up in debtor's prison. He is engaged to Hélène, whom he has never met. One day in a flower shop Hélène overhears Florestan complaining to his latest mistress about the arranged marriage and decides to teach him a lesson. She and her aunt Ermerance assume names (Hélène choses Véronique) and take jobs working at the flower shop.
Florestan eventually falls in love with Véronique/Hélène, and she runs away, leaving him a letter. Later, Hélène learns that Florestan has been thrown into prison and pays his debts for him. Florestan is very surprised to see who is waiting for him at the altar...
Adapted from French opérette 'Véronique' (André Messager,1898)
