Synopsis:
In this scene, the first of the opera, Malo, a slave, reveals to his master, Porus, that his daughter Volivia is in love with Sartagones, son of his mortal enemy. They spy on the two lovers, who sing a duet pledging eternal fidelity. Surprised by Porus, Sartagones begs for acceptance, which is denied until he threatens to take his own life. In a fit of compassion and nobility, Porus consents to the union and a joyous trio of reconciliation ends the scene.
