Adriana is caught between the attention of two lovers, one her manager, the other Maurizio, Count of Saxony. Unknowingly, she is trapped and poisoned by a rival in love. The drama reaches its poignant climax when, in the vane of true Italian tragedy, her lover returns to find Adriana dying and deluded, a victim of anger, jealousy and unrequited love.
