Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

DES GRIEUX
Je venais d'écrire à mon père…
Avant qu'on y mette un cachet,
vous lirez bien ceci, j'espère.

LESCAUT
prenant la lettre
Volontiers!
Mais voici le soir!
Lescaut suit Manon et Brétigny et éloigne volontairement Des Grieux.
Allons tous deux,
pour y mieux voir,
nous placer près de la fenêtre
et là nous lirons votre lettre.

English Libretto or Translation:

DES GRIEUX
I had just been writing to my father...
Before the letter is sealed,
I hope you'll read this.

LESCAUT
taking the letter
Very willingly!
But it's getting dark!
Lescaut watches Manon and Brétigny and intentionally guides Des Grieux away from them.
Let's both of us,
in order to see it better,
go over near the window,
and read your letter there.
