Example text

No! Clori a zampogna che soave implorò non disse mai no! Manon, you are Chloris, and Geronte has become Phileneus! Phileneus plays his pipes and whispers: have pity! But there is only a sighing echo: have pity! ” See, Phileneus is swooning! No! Chloris has never refused to come to the gentle sound of those plaintive pipes! Manon: Paga costor! Manon: (expressing her boredom) Pay these people! Lescaut: Oibò! Offender l’arte? Io v’accomiato in nome della Gloria! Lescaut: What! And offend art? I dismiss you in the name of ‘Glory’!

Manon is so weak that she must lean on des Grieux for support. Manon is tormented by the futility of trying to survive in the desolation of the vast, uninhabited plain. Des Grieux reassures her of his love, his tears her inspiration to survive and live. “Vedi, vedi, son io che piango” Des Grieux scans the horizon, agonizing that the land is barren and that there is no trace of water. Manon urges him to search the desert for food and water. Des Grieux hesitates to leave Manon, but then departs after he finds a place for Manon to rest.

Offender l’arte? Io v’accomiato in nome della Gloria! Lescaut: What! And offend art? I dismiss you in the name of ‘Glory’! As the singers depart, Geronte arrives, followed by musicians, friends, Abbés, and the dancing master. Manon: I madrigali! Il ballo! E poi la musica! Son tutte belle cose! Pur, m’annoio! Manon: Madrigals, dancing, and then the music! They’re all such beautiful things! But, they bore me! The musicians tune their instruments while Geronte arranges a Minuet lesson for Manon with the dancing master.
