Manon is now de Brétigny’s lover and is enjoying his wealth. However, she hears the Comte des Grieux tell de Brétigny that his son has entered the seminary at Saint-Suplice. She rushes off in search of her lover. He initially rejects her, but can’t overcome her seductive ways and yields to her, throwing away any desire to become an Abbé. At a gambling salon, Manon arrives with Des Grieux and convinces him to gamble. He defeats Guillot time and time again but is accused of cheating. Guillot leaves and returns with police, which arrests Des Grieux and Manon, on the grounds that she is a prostitute. Manon is condemned to be deported. Des Grieux and Lescaut plot to save Manon, but realize there is no hope against so many soldiers. Des Grieux and Manon reunite one last time before she dies in his arms. Famous Musical Numbers Manon’s “Adieu, notre petite table” is one of the most subtle musical passages that Massenet ever wrote, the simple aria building rather gently as Manon reflects on leaving her lover and the domestic life they held together. Des Grieux has two prominent arias, his dream “En fermant les yeux,” in which he relates his future with Manon. “Ah fuyez douce image” is the complete opposite tonally, a passionate plea to forgo his love for Manon. The two also share two famous
