As was the tradition in burlesque, the music for Ixion was borrowed from the repertoire of popular songs of the moment, some of which were given new lyrics or a new twist in performance. "Barbe Bleue" was taken from the Offenbach opera bouffe of the same name then playing at Niblo's Garden. The popular ditty, "Ringing for Sarah," was sung by the entire cast while ringing bells of every size and description. One of the hit numbers was the popular song, "While Strolling through the Park One Day": While strolling thro' the park one day, In the merry month of May, I was taken by surprise by a pair of roguish eyes, In a moment my poor heart was stole away.

Jupiter suggests that Ixion come to live among the gods. Mercury (Lisa Weber) accompanies him to Mount Olympus, where he meets and flirts with Venus (Pauline Markham).
