Synopsis
Don Pedro has defeated his brother Don John in battle and returns victorious to the home of his friend Leonato. Don Pedro's man Claudio falls in love with Leonato's daughter Hero and plans to marry her, but the devious Don John hatches a scheme to keep them apart. Meanwhile, Don Pedro brings together his woman-hating second in command with Leonato's niece Beatrice.
