Des Grieux is the only one present not to join in, he is a stranger to love. Even though he is always on the lookout, the right person has not yet come his way. Until this happens, Edmondo and Des Grieux decide that it is better to enjoy life and have fun with friends. Two men, accompanied by a young woman, alight from the stagecoach in order to find somewhere to spend the night.

Des Grieux is immediately attracted to the young woman and speaks to her to find out who she is. Her name is Manon Lescaut. Edmondo, who has observed the two of them, is pleased to see Des Grieux finally in love. However, the elderly gentleman, Geronte, has an entirely different plan: he asks the landlord to get him a coach, no matter what the cost, so that he can set off for Paris immediately with a lady; this lady is, of course, Manon.

He should simply flee with Manon in the coach which has been ordered. So when they meet again Des Grieux warns Manon that the debauched old man from the coach is planning to abduct her. He, however, could rescue her by fleeing with her himself immediately.

Manon agrees reluctantly. Geronte has to admit that his plan has been foiled. But Lescaut — inebriated from the wine and the card game — promises Geronte that he will soon bring his sister to him. A student cannot, he maintains, keep his luxury-loving sister happy for ever. Act Two Lescaut has been proved right.

Manon and Lescaut have enjoyed the luxury Geronte has offered them since they have been living in his house in Paris — a plan set up by Lescaut. Yet Manon still yearns to hear news of Des Grieux as she is missing the love and passion of her lover.

Lescaut takes a more pragmatic view, telling her that he has recommended that Des Grieux , with whom he is still in touch, should quickly make some money at cards so that he will be able to offer his sister a life of luxury very soon.

Until then he is satisfied with the situation. But neither dancing nor music can bring Manon contentment, she is bored. When Geronte asks her to dance she refuses, watched by a horde of gawping onlookers. Alone again, she is surprised by Des Grieux, who reproaches her with having betrayed her love. Manon does not deny this but asks him to forgive her, all her feelings are for him.

He leaves the lovers alone again as he has important things to attend to. Des Grieux wants to use this chance to flee instantly, but Manon hesitates to give up the wealth. Meanwhile Lescaut has learned that Geronte has just reported Manon to the police, who are already on their way.

Manon, who will be deported if found guilty, still cannot bear to leave the riches behind and does not want to flee without taking some of her jewels with her.

Lescaut just manages to hold Des Grieux back and prevent further violence. She is to be deported by sea to America. He has also hatched a plan for the following morning to free his sister from prison. Des Grieux discusses the plan with Manon and promises not to leave her to her fate. Des Grieux and Lescaut are, however, able to escape. The roll is called of the women who have been sentenced to deportation, in the presence of onlookers, and they are led on to the ship.

Des Grieux cannot bear to be separated from Manon and threatens the sergeant. But the guards have the situation under control, Manon must go aboard. The captain, out of sympathy, takes Des Grieux on board for America.

She is completely exhausted physically and collapses. Des Grieux does not know where to turn, but Manon begs him to at least find somewhere for them to spend the night. Manon does not want to die. She tells Des Grieux one last time of her undying love for him. In despair he wants to die with her. She hopes that in death her sins will be forgotten and the memory of her love will be all that remains.
