The first act focuses on New York's new industrial society made up of millionaires anxious to marry their daughters off to other millionaires' sons or preferably to a foreign title, no matter how impoverished. The sensational marriage of Consuelo Vanderbilt to the Duke of Marlborough in echoes loudly in "The Glassblowers. Colonel Vanderveer, a Wall Street tycoon, is pushing his daughter, Annabelle, into marriage with a rich young lay-about, Jack Bartlett.
The trouble is that Annabelle is leftist inclined and wants a husband who works for a living, and Geraldine is a new rich snob who wants to be kept by a husband, not the keeper of one. When it appears that the Duke prefers Annabelle, Geraldine and Jack -- who has gotten a job at the glass works to prove his love for Annabelle -- impulsively announce their engagement. But all plans are put on hold when Annabelle's father is ruined financially by Geraldine's unscrupulous father and Annabelle has to go to work at the glass works too. Act 2 finds Jack leading the union movement at the glassworks, thus redeeming himself in the eyes of Annabelle, and volunteering along with most of the other factory workers for military service when the United States declares war on Spain.
Annabelle leads a force of Red Cross nurses that heads for Cuba on the Pompton yacht. The war is won after a raid on Santiago led by Jack, who subsequently outwits Pompton's chicanery and restores the Vanderveer fortune.

Jack gets Annabelle, and the Duke, also a war hero, gets Geraldine, who has been just the girl to grace his ancestral castle all along. Jeffrey Lentz, a spirited young singer with lovely light tenor, makes an attractive Jack, and coloratura soprano Anna Christy is winningly pert in her City Opera debut as Annabelle. Baritone Richard Whitehouse, also making his debut with the company, is sympathetic as the good-natured duke, but mezzo-soprano Jennifer Dudley never makes her Geraldine come alive.
Contralto Myrna Paris is amusingly grand in the role of the socially ambitious Mrs.

Vanderveer, probably drawn originally as a parody of Mrs. William Astor, leader of New York's "" society, and tenor Kenneth Morris creates the perfect caricature of a robber baron as Pompton.
