Mustafà is looking for love. Isabella, a beautiful Italian girl, arrives at just the right time after her ship is hijacked. However, it’s not all plain sailing: in Mustavà’s palace, Isabella finds her true love, Lindoro. Together, they decide to elope. Mustafà enters the fictional order of the Pappataci, who swear by the oath: Nothing to see, nothing to hear, just eat and drink. Isabella and Lindoro are now free to elope.
