Description of Bellini's I Puritani from the Lyric Opera of Chicago's website:

During the English Civil War, the emotionally fragile, Puritan woman Elvira and the heroic Royalist Arturo have fallen in love and are to be married. However, another Puritan, Riccardo, is in love with Elvira and has been promised her hand in marriage. The star-crossed lovers’ story unravels in a tangle of political intrigue, deception, misunderstanding, and madness, but the power of true love may be able to conquer all.
