Marta is the unwilling mistress of a wealthy landowner, Sebastiano. To keep the poor girl near him while he takes a wealthy wife, Sebastiano marries Marta off to the shepherd, Pedro. Unaware of her past, Pedro falls in love with her. When Marta’s awful secret comes to light, Pedro does whatever it takes to free his beloved from her misery.

This passionate example of early 20th century verismo opera is seen regularly in Germany and Austria, but there has been only one other U.S. production in a century.

Running time is approximately 2 hours and 41 minutes.
