Richard Strauss's Viennese comedy "Der Rosenkavalier" tells the tale of the Marschallin and Octavian, who tries to save the beautiful young Sophie von Faninal from a loveless marriage with the elderly Baron Ochs.
By disguising himself as a serving wench, Octavian manages to grab the lecherous Baron's attentions and carefully arranges for Sophie's father to see it, leaving her free to marry Octavian instead.
