When a wealthy old bachelor decides to take a pretty young wife, he is--this being opera--in for trouble. Especially when that wife is the enchanting Reri Grist.

"Enchanting" might the best word to describe Donizetti's delightful, tune-filled, and touching comedy. The marvelous Carlo Bergonzi is Nemorino, a simple, good-hearted farmer, in love with the beautiful, capricious--and wealthy--Adina (Renato Scotto), who hardly knows he even exists. She is much more taken with the flashy good looks and superficial charms of Sergeant Belcore (Mario Sereni). Enter the clever quack Dr. Dulcamara (Fernando Corena), who's peddling cheap Bordeaux wine as a mystical love potent. But Nemorino's affection for Adina is honest and sincere, and since this is a comic opera, everything ends just the way it should

The story: Act I. The action unfolds on Cyprus, under Venetian rule in the 16th century. The scene is outside the castle, residence of Otello, governor of the island, facing the port. It is night. A furious storm churns the sea, and a crowd of Venetian citizens and soldiers helplessly watch while the ship of the Moor Otello desperately tries to make it into port. Only Iago, one of Otello's men, does not participate in the general apprehension for the safety of his leader: he hates Otello, because Otello has promoted Cassio captain instead of him; he meditates revenge. The crowd is jubilant as Otello finally lands safely and announces that the Turkish fleet has been defeated. When the Moor enters the castle, the fireworks start and all drink to his victory. In the midst of the rejoicing, Iago starts to weave the scheme that will lead to his commander's downfall: he treacherously insinuates to Roderigo, who had revealed to Iago his love for Otello's wife, Desdemona, that Captain Cassio also feels the same affection for the woman. Then Iago gets Cassio drunk, and incites a fight between the two men, but the dangerous duel that starts between them is stopped by Montano. However, the peacemaker is wounded by Cassio. Iago sounds the alarm, swelling the episode out of proportion until the crowd is in tumult. Called back by the shouts and noise, Otello, falsely informed by Iago, punishes Cassio and demotes him. This is a first victory for Iago, who exults
