"Money serves Wise Men and governs Fools"
When Pantalone, the Miser conspires with Il Dottore to fake an illness to convince his daughter, Isabella to marry Count Antonio Viagra, he sets off a chain reaction of mirth and mayhem that catches everyone in its wake. Pretending that he is allergic to his gold, he tries to trick Isabella into the arranged marriage. Forced to choose between her father's "dying" wish and her love for Lelio, she turns to Arlecchino, her father's servant for help.
In this clip Arlecchino is played by Jeff Schwager and Pantalone is played Stephen LaFrenie. Pantalone has entrusted a copy of the secret marriage contract to Arlecchino and now wants to have it back.
