Malgré toutes ses précautions, il n'a pu empêcher le jeune comte Almaviva de voir Rosine et de tomber amoureux d'elle. Lui aussi désire l'épouser. Sans se faire connaître, car il veut mettre à l'épreuve l'amour de la jeune fille sans l'influencer, le Comte a déjà tenté, sous le nom de Lindor, différents moyens d'approcher la pupille jalousement gardée et d'obtenir un signe d'elle."--Livrat d'accompagnement
