The evil sorceress Alcina has enslaved Ruggiero, a heroic Christian warrior, on her enchanted island. Disguised as his old tutor Atlas, a good sorceress Melissa comes to rescue him. Her persuasive words convince Ruggerio to discard Alcina's gifts of love and to reject her. Furious, Alcina summons monsters of the deep to seek revenge on Ruggerio. Melissa's magic is more powerful than Alcina's and she banishes her. Melissa frees enchanted damsels, whom Alcina had turned into flowers and plants, and frees enchanted knights who also were ensnared by Alcina. They all dance, with much rejoicing, that the wicked Alcina has been defeated.

The Tragic Muse sets the scene in the Prologue. The wedding of Orpheus and Euridice is being celebrated by nymphs and shepherds. Euridice is fatally bitten by a snake. Orpheus vows to join her in the Underworld and is transported there by Venus in her chariot. He pleads with Pluto and other gods of the Underworld for the return of his wife. Venus suggests that Orpheus charm the gods with his sweet singing. They relent and allow Euridice to return to the world and great rejoicing results from this happy ending.
