Storyline

The story is told of a beautiful Italian singer in a wandering troupe in Italy. A too-persistent lover kills her father, who quarrels with him when he forces his embraces on his daughter. Afterwards the girl becomes famous and goes to America, where she becomes the leading singer of an opera company. There she meets her former suitor, who again conspires against her, this time aiding a rival prima donna who is jealous of the new favorite. He tries to poison her in a cup of wine which she drinks during the performance, but her life is saved by a former clown with the wandering players, who has acted as her guardian during the many trials of her life.
