Maria Oskolsky is in love with Boleslav Chaplinsky, but is coveted by
Pan Voyevoda, who disregards her lover's claim. Yadviga, who has
designs upon the Voyevoda, obtains from a sorcerer, Dorosha, a poison
which during a banquet she pours into Maria's glass; but the Voyevoda,
drinking from it in error, expires, and Chaplinsky, who is lying under
a sentence of death, is released.
