The deep-seated hatred between their families prevents Lucia Ashton and Edgardo Ravenswood to live their love openly. Taking advantage of Edgardo's departure, Enrico's people convince the young girl she has been betrayed by her lover. Lucia is forced into marrying Arturo by her brother: the brutality of the situation drives her to madness to the point that she murders her husband during the ceremony. Edgardo discovers Lucia is dead and, beside himself with grief, takes his own life.
