The jealous Masacco pretends to go on a trip disguised as a cavalier in order to test the faithfulness of his wife Dorina with flattery and gifts. Dorina sees through him, however, and turns the tables on him. She first pretends to be a wife who is sick through longing. Then, when he reveals to her that her husband has met his death, she reacts with relief and responds to his advances. Finally, when Masacco returns home as a husband, Dorina appears in the disguise of her own suitor. The alleged rivals start a fight until ultimately Masacco, begging for his life, promises his wife Dorina to his rival. Now Dorina reveals who she really is. She has taught her husband a lasting lesson and thus freed herself from his jealous insinuations once and for all.
