ACT I

Scene One 
Prince  Lev  Nikolaevich Myshkin returns to St. Petersburg after years of treatment in Switzerland. On the train he meets Parfyon Rogozhin and Lebedev. Rogozhin has just inherited a fortune of two million from his father who died a sudden death. Not long before that Rogozhin had to flee from father’s wrath after having spent ten thousand on a gift to Nastassya Filippovna whom he fell in love with at first sight. 

Meanwhile Nastassya Filippovna is anxiously waiting for her fate to be sealed on that very night. 

Scene Two 
General Yepanchin and Totsky talk over the future of Nastassya Filippovna, Totsky’s mistress. They want to marry her off to Ganya Ivolgin, which will allow Totsky to marry Yepanchin’s daughter Aglaya. Ganya is getting a generous compensation for marrying a fallen woman: Totsky will give her a large dowry. 

Prince Myshkin comes to meet his only relatives in St. Petersburg, the Yepanchins. The General does not welcome a guest with no money and no plans for the future. Ganya comes in to show the portrait of Nastassya Filippovna that she gave to him. The Prince is astonished. 

General Yepanchin leaves his guest with his wife and three daughters: Aglaya, Alexandra and Adelaida. 

Rogozhin is desperate to thwart Nastassya Filippovna’s wedding and commands the moneylenders to get him a hundred thousand roubles by night. 

The Yepanchins are fascinated by Myshkin’s stories about his life in Switzerland. Ganya asks the Prince to pass a note to Aglaya. In his note he promises to break his betrothal for just one word from her. 

In response Aglaya asks the Prince to tell Ganya that she does not condescend to bargain and to give him back his note. Ganya is outraged. 

Scene Three 
The Prince in lodging at the Ivolgins. He soliloquizes affectionately: «I don’t believe, I won’t believe that evil is fine for a man!» The family is gathered in the living room. Ganya’s sister Varya is aghast that her brother is going to marry a dissolute woman whom he does not even love. Nastassya Filippovna arrives and is startled to find that the man she initially takes for a footman is Prince Myshkin. A drunken gang led by Rogozhin invades the place. Rogozhin tries to buy off Ganya, then Nastassya Filippovna herself in order to prevent the wedding. The bargain is interrupted by a scandalous scene: Ganya attempts to strike the repulsed Varya but is stopped by the Prince. 

Scene Four 
Yepanchin,  Lebedev, Totsky and Ganya are Nastassya Filippovna’s guests. The Prince arrives unexpectedly, uninvited. The hostess leaves it up to him to decide whether she should marry Ganya or not, and the Prince tells her she should refuse. «So be it» concludes Nastassya Filippovna. It is clear to her that Ganya was driven by greed alone. Rogozhin arrives. He has brought the hundred thousand roubles. The Prince proposes Nastassya Filippovna his hand in marriage saying that her life is not ruined, that she is not guilty but is the one who suffered. Nastassya Filippovna cannot accept his hand, she thinks she will ruin the prince. Taking Rogozhin’s money, she throws it into the fire and commands Ganya to take it out. He faints. Rogozhin and Nastassya Filippovna ride away together. 

Scene Five 
The Prince arrives at Rogozhin’s place. Rogozhin is certain that though Nastassya Filippovna lives with him she loves the Prince alone. Myshkin assures him that he is no rival and feels nothing but pity for her. They exchange crosses to become sworn brothers.
