Ring Round The Moon introduces audiences to well-to-do twin brothers: Shy and sensitive Frederic, and Hugo, who is heartless, confident and charming. Frederic is in love with a saucy, spoiled girl (Diana) who is in love with Hugo. To save Frederic from an unhappy marriage, Hugo tries to distract him by bringing the beautiful, lower-class club dancer Isabelle to a high-class masquerade ball. As the evening gala ensues, the bevy of colorful characters descend into plots and playful deception, an all-out girl fight, tango-disguised secret meetings, and amélange of romantic partnering.
