Aus Freundschaft zu dem frisch verliebten, aber hoch verschuldeten Aristokraten Bassanio lässt sich Kaufmann Antonio auf einen ungewöhnlichen Handel mit dem jüdischen Geldverleiher Shylock ein. Für einen Kredit von 3.000 Dukaten bürgt Antonio, der sich baldiger Einnahmen durch ausgelaufene Handelsschiffe sicher ist, mit einem Pfund seines eigenen Fleisches. Mit diesem Geld kann Bassanio jetzt angemessen um die Hand von Portia werben. Die Schönheit und ihr Verehrer lieben sich, doch der Besiegelung des Glücks steht eine Klausel von Portias verstorbenem Vater im Wege. Während er dem Glück ganz nahe kommt, wird ein anderer davon verlassen. Antonio verliert auf See sein Vermögen, kann seine Schulden nicht begleichen. Jetzt sieht der verbitterte Shylock seine Stunde gekommen, sich für ein Leben der Demütigungen und Diskriminierungen zu rächen ... (Quelle: Homepage des Verlags)
