Overview


Synopsis

The young Spanish nobleman, Belmonte, arrives at the pirate, Pasha Selim's, house, to reclaim his lost love, Constanza, whom was abducted previously by the pirates. At Pasha's house, Belmonte finds his long lost servant, Pedrillo, working for Pasha. He enlists his help, and the two men attempt to free Constanza. After their attempt fails, Pasha discovers that Belmonte's father is his archenemy, and thus, sentences all three to death. Soon afterwards, though, Pasha decides that evil should not be returned with evil and allows Belmonte, Constanza, and Pedrillo to freely return to Spain.
