It is Amina and Elvino’s wedding day and the whole village is celebrating. Teresa, the woman who raised Amina as if she were her own daughter, is full of joy. Meanwhile, Lisa, who is hosting the party, is desperate because she is in love with Elvino. A strange gentleman arrives at the party and is dazzled by Amina’s beauty. Elvino becomes jealous. Some of the villagers recognize the gentleman.
He is a nobleman, the lord of the castle’s son. They welcome him and inform him that they have seen a ghost wandering through the village at night. A ghost? Who could it be?
