Twenty years later, Basilio, concerned about the succession to his throne, decides to see whether predestination or free will is the stronger force. Segismundo is drugged and brought to court asleep: if he can control his passions, he is fit to reign; if not, he will be returned to his prison and told that his palace experience was only a dream.
