Quote Wikipedia:
The opera premiered on 28 March 1846 in Zagreb and is considered to be the first Croatian national opera. Its premiere had been delayed when the singer who was to take the leading male role was shot and seriously injured during the Austrian crackdown on Croatian nationalists in July 1845. Most of the protestors who were shot were (like the composer himself) adherents of the Illyrian Movement 

First act

Story takes place in the early 16th century near the town of Split. The main character is young Ljubica, daughter of Prince Velimir, who promised her hand to prince Vukosav. However, she is in love with young Obren. He is in love with her too. Vukosav finds out about that and attacks Obren. They start fencing. Prince Velimir then separates them and denies access to his home for both of them. Vukosav declares blood feud.

Second act

Ljubica and Obren meet up in the garden and he confesses his love to her. Vukosav who spied on them brings Velimir so he could see Obrenov’s courtship. Velimir gets angry and leaves. Vukosav and his servant Branko hatch a plot to kidnap Ljubica and kill Velimir with the help of twelve Hajduk‘s. Obrenov’s friend Ljudevit finds out about the plot.

Velimir forces Ljubica to write a letter to Obren in which she refuses him. Ljubica’s letter breaks Obren’s heart and he tries to kill himself but at that moment Hajduk’s attack Velimir’s estate and capture him, Obren and Ljubica. Velimir admits that he forced Ljubica to write letter
