Synopsis
The action of the ballet takes place in a fashionable cafe in the eighteen-seventies, where people come to relax and to enjoy themselves at the hour when most people go to sleep. As it has an international reputation, visiting celebrities come to see, to be seen, and to be amused. Among these are a famous operetta star and one of her admirers, a grand duke. A debutante of good family, accompanied by three of her friends, arrives, veiled, in order not to be recognized in a place which for families is "out of bounds." There is a young painter, who, like all young painters, is penniless and tries to earn a meagre living by drawing sketches of the cafe's patrons. There is no story to the ballet, for the flirtations that take place at such a place, at such a time, are most often half-forgotten by the next morning. There is neither a sad ending nor a happy ending, but only a closing time.
