Prince Ivan of Zergovia has just returned from studying abroad and is to be crowned King. Though he has flirted with many women during his travels, he has fallen in love with the opera singer, Vivien. The law of Zergovia states that Ivan must marry a princess in order to keep the throne, and several princesses are on hand vying to become his queen. Meanwhile, the former regent of Zergovia and the minister of war plot to keep Ivan off the throne and to keep themselves in power.

Includes the hit song "Art Is Calling For Me" ("I want to be a prima-donna").
