Content:

Count Moritz of Saxony, the famous commander and ladys man, would like to be Count of Kurland. To attain his goal, he is prepared to marry the widowed Countess Anna of Kurland, even if he must give up his relationship with the famous actress Adrienne Lecouvreur whom he really loves. Moritz looks for the countess in Mitau in Kurland; Adrienne also follows him there. Although Moritz claims to want to surprise the countess with a guest performance of the famous actress, the temperamental Anna is immediately suspicious.
After a series of vain efforts, Countess Anna gains certainty about the relationship between Moritz and the actress in a personal conversation with Adrienne. Faced with a choice, the ambitious count decides on the advantageous relationship with the countess. At a festive theatrical performance, with Adrienne in the leading role, a ridiculous scandal ensues and the Countess commands that the actress leave immediately. When she catches her future husband in a farewell talk with Adrienne, Countess Anna breaks up with him. King August, who knows nothing of the events in Mitau, awaits the visit of his alleged daughter-in-law at Dresden castle. No one dares to tell the King the truth until Moritz finally tells him. At a last meeting with Adrienne, Moritz bids farewell to the beloved lady and returns to the dangerous and uncertain life of a soldier.
