Returning to Rome after a victorious campaign, Licinius finds his beloved Julia has become a priestess of Vesta. Although Julia attempts to avoid going to Licinius's triumph , she is delegated to present him with a wreath. He tells her that he intends to kidnap and reclaim her. In the temple of Vesta, Julia guards the eternal flame and prays to be freed of temptation. Licinius arrives; during their rapturous reconciliation, the flame expires. Licinius is advised by Cinna to flee.

Julia is interrogated by the High Priest but refuses to name Licinius. She is sentenced to death for licentiousness. Despite the pleas of Licinius, Julia is to be buried alive; even when he admits his intrusion to the Temple, Julia claims not to recognise him.

With 'La Vestale,' Renewed Appreciation for Spontini

The result, produced at the Paris Opera in , became the most successful serious French opera between the eras of Gluck and Meyerbeer. But its musical and dramatic continuity could span an entire act. In Act 3, that goal is a happy ending, when, in a sign of divine grace, a flash of lightning rekindles the sacred flame. Julia still feels devoted to the goddess Vesta despite her love for Licinius. And the latest military triumph of Licinius, who was formerly betrothed to Julia, is commemorated in a ceremony ironically led by the vestal virgin he still loves. On the negative side, Mr. Lacascade took a flippant approach at several points in the drama.
