Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

MANON
Seccata, dà una borsa a Lescaut.
Paga costor!

LESCAUT
Intasca la borsa.
Oibò! … Offender l'arte?
maestoso, ai musici
Io v'accomiato in nome della Gloria!

I musici escono inchinandosi. Dalle porte vetrate del fondo si vedono sfilare nell'anticamera alcuni amici di Geronte, che li riceve.

MANON
mostrando quelli a Lescaut
I madrigali! … Il ballo! … E poi la musica!
Entrano i suonatori di quartetto, i quail si collocano nel fondo, ed accordano poi i loro strumenti.
Son tutte belle cose! … Pur …
sbadigliando
m'annoio!

Manon si alza e va in fondo incontro a Geronte, il quale entra nel salotto col Maestro di ballo e
con Manon, per organizzare la lezione del Minuetto.


LESCAUT
(Una donnina che s'annoia
è cosa da far paura!
con decisione
Andiam da Des Grieux!
È da maestro preparar gli eventi!)

Esce inosservato.

English Libretto or Translation:

MANON
Annoyed, give a scholarship to Lescaut.
Pay costor!

LESCAUT
Pocket the bag.
Oibò! ... offender the art?
majestic, to the musicians
I vouched you in the name of Glory!

The musicians come out bowing. Some friends of Geronte, who receives them, can be seen in the antechamber through the glass doors of the basement.

MANON
showing those in Lescaut
The madrigals! … The dance! ... And then the music!
Enter the quartet players, which are placed in the bottom, and then accord their instruments.
They are all beautiful things! … While …
yawning
bores me!

Manon gets up and goes down to meet Geronte, who enters the living room with the Dance Master e
with Manon, to organize the lesson of the Minuet.

LESCAUT
(A little woman bobbing
it's scary!
with decision
Let's go to Des Grieux!
Prepare events!)

It goes unnoticed.
