Abstract: Let $ \pi : \widetilde C \to C$ be an unramified double covering of irreducible smooth curves and let $ P$ be the attached Prym variety. We prove the scheme-theoretic theta-dual equalities in the Prym variety $ T(\widetilde C)=V^2$ and $ T(V^2)=\widetilde C$, where $ V^2$ is the Brill-Noether locus of $ P$ associated to $ \pi $ considered by Welters. As an application we prove a Torelli theorem analogous to the fact that the symmetric product $ D^{(g)}$ of a curve $ D$ of genus $ g$ determines the curve.
