Set at the turn of the 20th century in the mythical kingdom of Zilania, Victor Herber's Sweethearts follows washwoman Dame Paula (affectionately known as "Mother Goose") and her gaggle of daughters. The adopted and starry-eyed Sylvia is the unknown heir to Zilania's throne and the object of the good-hearted Prince Franz's affection. But their potential happy-ever-after is threatened by a military cad, a conniving diva lusting for the crown, and a trio of statesmen seeking their own political gain. Plenty of confusion ensues, backed by Herbert's lush and lyrical music, until love finally conquers all.
