What is the plot? Vincentio, Duke of Vienna, disgusted by the immorality in his city, announces his withdrawal from public life and leaves the puritanical Angelo in charge. Angelo, in his zeal for observing the letter of the law, begins a ruthless program to stamp out sexual license, in the course of which he condemns one Claudio to death. Surely Claudio’s virginal sister Isabella, a novice nun seeking mercy for her brother, could not awake the lust of this cold, censorious man?
