The story takes place during the Carnival in Spain. Don Pasquale explains to Antonio Galvan that Concha Pérez broke his heart. In spite of this warning Antonio falls in love with Concha himself. This leads to a duel with pistols between Don Pasquale and Antonio. Concha begs Don Pasquale not to hurt Antonio, and he shoots into the air. Don Pasquale is wounded by Antonio's shot, but not fatally. Concha asks Antonio to take her to Paris, but then leaves him for Don Pasqual Costelar.
