Only the atmosphere of the ending carnival explains the misdeeds done by the characters of this crazy comedy, which is “Fat Thursday”. Nina loves Teodoro. But her father wants to marry her off to Ernesto – a quite nice and, as it turns out, smart boy. The young couple, together with a group of friends, plot a conspiracy against Ernesto. However, he pays them in their own coin – he also has its own plan. Who will win and marry Nina?

“The Night Bell” tells the story of a rejected lover who becomes an intrusive stalker. He will do everything so that the one he loves does not spend the wedding night with her husband. As soon as the young couple is about to close the bedroom door, the doorbell rings in the house. And it does so several times until morning. An operatic farce about a cunning stalker who has plotted a hilarious revenge.
