The libretto hasn’t been changed, but the costumes are more generic. What’s lost in this production, as in so many other productions, is that it isn’t necessarily an invited group of performers but Flora’s party guests dressed up to “tell fortunes” as part of the evening’s entertainment. That’s why Flora is tickled when they say she has no romantic rivals but then snaps st her lover when the ladies say the Marquis is a ladies’ man.
