Xerjoff Opera takes us to the world of drama and tragedy - here everything is about the real great things in life: Love, desperation, death. As the curtain raises, we see a wonderful orchard, in which a southern prince devotes noble Turkish roses to his beloved princess. Of course he is not the only gentleman wooing the princess - a rich merchant's son gives her finest spices such as nutmeg, and ylang-ylang, amber and noble leather. But his effort remains unsuccessful - her heart belongs to the prince. Their wedding is a large celebration for the whole country, and the young couple is given patchouly, vanilla, cedarwood, vetiver and musk as a bridas present.
