All of Europe lays at the feet of the dancer Barberina.  Even Friedrich II, King of Prussia, wants to engage her at his opera house.  When she refuses, he has her brought to Berlin under military guard, forces her to perform and does so much to make sure she is cared for, that it soon seems a love story is to develop between the two.  However, when Friedrich goes to war against Austria, Barberina falls in love with the secret agent Baron von Cocceji.  After a concert she will perform in on the occasion of the return of the king from war, her intention is to flee with Coceji abroad.

Der schönen Tänzerin Barberina liegt ganz Europa zu Füßen. Auch Friedrich II., König von Preußen, will sie an sein Opernhaus engagieren. Als sie sich weigert, lässt er sie unter militärischer Bewachung nach Berlin bringen, zwingt sie aufzutreten und bemüht sich so eifrig um sie, dass sich zwischen ihnen eine Liebesgeschichte anzubahnen scheint. Jedoch als Friedrich gegen Österreich in den Krieg zieht, verliebt sich Barberina in den Geheimrat Baron von Cocceji. Nach einem Konzert anlässlich der Rückkehr des Königs will sie mit Cocceji ins Ausland fliehen.
