Doctor Baliardo, a Neapolitan philosopher, is so enraptured with the mysteries of the Moon that he has come to believe it is peopled, ruled and regulated like the earth. He denies his daughter Elaria and his niece Bellemante to their respective lovers because they are mere men of Earth. The lovers are, however, secretly assisted in a trick against the Doctor by Scaramouch, Halequino and a host of other colourful characters. Disguises, song and dance, and hilarity ensue along the way.
