Venezia, spring of 1866, in the last days of the Austrian occupation. A performance of Il Trovatore ends up in confusion due to an antiAustrian demonstration, organised by Count Ussoni. His cousin Countess Serpieri, a troubled and neurotic married woman falls in love with vile Austrian Lieutenant Franz Mahler, and engages herself in a self-destructive love affair, in which she forgets her principles and decency, while betraying her country with tragic consequences.
