The Baron and Cinderella are talking of the future, in that one day Cinderella will leave to be married and in the meantime, how to make ends meet. The Baron decides to invite his sister, Hysteria, to stay, together with her daughters Hernia and Nausea, in order to share the costs. Their faithful servant, Buttons, who has taken a shine to Cinderella, is sent with the invitation. Meanwhile the King and Queen are talking of the need to find a bride for the Prince in order to ensure the succession; despite the Prince’s reservations a ball is arranged to allow prospective brides to be assessed.
