Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

BRÉTIGNY
Oui, c'est Manon!

LE COMTE
Je devine alors la raison qui vous fit, avec
tant de zèle, predre les intérêts de mon fils...
Mais, pardon! Elle veut vous parler.
Elle est vraiment fort belle!

MANON
à Brétigny, le comte se tient à part à quelque distance
Je voudrais, mon ami, avoir un bracelet pareil
à celui-ci... Je ne puis le trouver.

BRÉTIGNY
C'est bien, je vais moi-même.
Il salue le comte et sort.

LE COMTE
à part
Elle est charmante
et je comprends qu'on l'aime!

English Libretto or Translation:

BRÉTIGNY
Yes, that's Manon!

COUNT
I can easily guess then why you supported
so wholeheartedly the best interests of my
son... But excuse me, she wants to speak
with you. She's really beautiful.

MANON
to Brétigny; the Count now is standing aside at some distance
My friend, I should like to have a bracelet
similar to this one... I cannot find it.

BRÉTIGNY
Fine, I myself, will go to look.
He bows to the Count and goes off.

COUNT
aside
She's charming, and I understand now why
she is loved.
