Summary
Leonora and Don Alvaro are preparing to elope when her father enters the room to stop them. He has opposed their marriage because of Don Alvaro's mixed ancestory. In a token of surrender, Alvaro throws his pistol to the floor which discharges. Fatally wounded, the Marquis curses Leonora and the force of destiny is thus set in motion. Leonora escapes and goes to a monastery to repent and spend her last days. Her brother, Don Carlo, has vowed to hunt her and Alvaro down and kill them to vendicate his father's death. Don Carlo and Alvaro meet in Italy during the war, and before Carlo can extract his vengeance, Alvaro escapes. He unknowingly goes to the same monastery as Leonora. One evening, Carlo arrives and the two duel. All three of their paths converge for a final fatal time
