Carmosine, the daughter of a rich doctor of Palermo, is affianced to Perillo, a law student. Alas, she sees her king at a tourney, falls madly in love with him and wants to die, for her love is hopeless. The king already has a queen, who counsels the girl to love her king, as indeed she should, but more purely. The king says tenderly that  he will wear her clothes at the next tourney, but that she must marry the young Perillo. Church bells ring and Carmosine awakes to marry Perillo happily, for it has all been a dream.
Henri de Curzon (Le Théâtre) compliments the librettists for their handling of this delicate tale, adapted from Boccaccio and Alfred de Musset. As for the music, he says it is "different and more respectable? than Monna Vanna, but is not struck by Février's originality.
The poster shows the King talking with Carmosine and Perillo in a night scene glowing with torchlight.
