After realizing that the Roman Emperor Titus intends to marry Bérénice, the noblewoman Vitellia— infatuated with the ruler—decides to conspire against him. She asks Sextus, a loyal friend of Titus who is also in love with her, to kill him—but he is arrested and condemned to death by Titus. The emperor, in an act of admirable clemency, ends the opera by pardoning all the conspirators, serving as a symbol of wisdom and goodwill.
