The king of Macedonia, Alessandro, has overthrown Stratone, the tyrant of Sidon, but aims to find the rightful king. Alessandro in disguise and accompanied by Agenore hears from Aminta of the merits of a simple life and is resolved to restore him to his proper position. He seeks to arrange a marriage between Aminta and Tamiri, who is loved by Agenore, while Aminta himself loves Elisa. Alessandro, when he learns the true situation, magnanimously agrees to the marriages of the pairs of lovers.
