Die junge Frau auf Sardinien findet einfach keinen Ehemann. Liegt das an den leidenschaftlichen Briefen, die sie ihren Verehrern schreibt?
Doch dann nimmt ihre Familie einen besitzlosen Witwer auf. Er ist zum Entsetzen der jungen Frau bereit, sie zu heiraten, eine Vernunftehe, denn beide empfinden nichts füreinander. Soll das die heiß ersehnte große Leidenschaft sein?

He wants a male heir, but the oracle tells him that his grandson from Danae will become his heir, and also kill him. Acrisius imprisons Danae in an underground bronze room. Zeus comes to her as a shower of gold and Perseus (“destroyer”) is conceived.
