Act I
The noblemen de Brétigny and Guillot de Morfontaine are having dinner with three young women—Poussette, Javotte, and Rosette—at an inn in Amiens. People gather for the arrival of the coach to Paris, among them Lescaut. He is waiting for his young cousin Manon, who is on her way to enter a convent. The coach arrives and Manon expresses her exuberant joy about her first journey away from home. Enchanted by her, Guillot offers to take Manon to Paris, but she and his companions laugh at him. Lescaut reproaches Manon for her behavior, which could shame their family. Manon gazes with envy at the elegant clothes of the other girls. The young Chevalier des Grieux arrives too late to catch the coach, which has already left for Paris. He falls in love with Manon at first sight, and when she tells him that it is her fondness for pleasure that has led her family to send her to a convent, he is determined to rescue her from such a fate. They escape together in Guillot’s coach. The returning Lescaut furiously accuses Guillot of having kidnapped his cousin, but then learns from the innkeeper that Manon went off with a young man. Guillot, mocked by everyone, swears revenge on the eloping couple. 

第一幕
在亞眠的旅店,貴族吉烈替尼與傑隆特•德蒙逢塔努正與普賽忒、賈薇特與蘿賽特三位妙齡女子共享晚餐。眾人等候前往巴黎的馬車,而雷斯考也在其中。他在等要去修道院的年輕堂妹瑪儂。馬車抵達,首次離家遠遊的瑪儂顯得興高采烈。傑隆特為她著迷不已,自告奮勇要帶她到巴黎,卻被她和自己的同伴訕笑。雷斯考責罵瑪儂輕浮,說她會害家族蒙羞。瑪儂端詳其他少女的優雅華服,羡慕不已。年輕的德格魯騎士來得太遲,沒能趕上前往巴黎的馬車。德格魯對瑪儂一見鍾情,瑪儂說自己太愛尋歡作樂,才會被家人送到修道院。聽完這番訴苦,德格魯決定幫她脫離這樣的命運。他們駕著傑隆特的馬車逃逸,雷斯考回來後怒罵傑隆特綁架堂妹,後來經由旅店老闆告知,才知道瑪儂是隨年輕男子離開。傑隆特淪為眾人笑柄,發誓要報復這對私奔男女。

Act II
In their apartment in Paris, des Grieux writes to his father for permission to marry Manon. The maid announces visitors: Lescaut and another man, who, she warns Manon, is de Brétigny in disguise. Lescaut, using the argument of family honor offended, berates des Grieux for having abducted Manon. In fact he is trying to profit by setting her up with de Brétigny. Des Grieux, to prove his honorable intentions, produces his letter. Meanwhile, de Brétigny tells Manon that des Grieux’s father is planning to kidnap his own son that evening; if she does nothing to prevent it and instead comes to live with de Brétigny, she can have wealth and luxury. After Lescaut and de Brétigny have left, des Grieux goes out to post his letter. Manon realizes she is unable to resist de Brétigny’s offer and bids farewell to her life with des Grieux. Des Grieux returns to find her weeping, but she will not tell him why. He talks of his dream of an idyllic future together in the country. When there’s a knock on the door Manon begs him not to answer it, but he goes. Looking out the window, she sees him being abducted. 

第二幕
德格魯在巴黎寓所寫著家書,想請父親同意他與瑪儂的婚事。女僕通知有人拜訪,來者是雷斯考與一名男子,女僕警告瑪儂那是喬裝後的布烈替尼。雷斯考訓斥德格魯綁架瑪儂,認為此舉損害家族名譽,其實他是想撮合瑪儂與布烈替尼,藉此獲得利益。德格魯拿出家書,想證明自己是真心誠意。布烈替尼還告訴瑪儂,德格魯伯爵打算趁今晚擄走兒子。倘若她袖手旁觀及跟自己離開,就能獲得榮華富貴。雷斯考與布烈替尼離開後,布烈替尼外出寄信。瑪儂自覺無法抗拒布烈替尼的誘人提議,斷絕與德格魯生活的念頭。德格魯回來發現瑪儂在啜泣,而她卻不說為什麼。德格魯夢想與她在鄉村過著牧歌生活,這時敲門聲響起,瑪儂哀求他不要應門,但他終究還是去了。瑪儂望向窗外,眼睜睜看著德格魯被抓走。

Act III
On a public holiday, a crowd has gathered at the Cours-la-Reine. Manon, now living with de Brétigny and the toast of Paris, praises the pleasures of her luxurious existence. Overhearing a conversation between de Brétigny and the Count des Grieux, she learns that the count’s son, following an unhappy love affair, is about to become a priest and will preach later that day at the seminary of St. Sulpice. Manon doesn’t believe that des Grieux could have forgotten her and leaves the festivities to find him.

At St. Sulpice, des Grieux has attracted much admiration for his sermon. The count tries to dissuade his son from entering the priesthood in favor of marriage. Des Grieux is adamant but realizes that he can’t forget Manon. When she appears he angrily confronts her. She admits her guilt but begs him to forgive her and to remember their past love. Des Grieux yields to his feelings and renounces his vows. 

第三幕
這天是國定假日,皇后大道熱鬧非凡。瑪儂正與布烈替尼同住,往來對象盡為巴黎名流,生活奢華享樂。她偶然聽到布烈替尼與德格魯伯爵的談話,得知他兒子在感情受挫後決定成為神父,當晚將在聖敘爾比斯教堂佈道。瑪儂不相信德格魯已將她忘懷,於是離開慶典去找他。

德格魯在聖敘爾比斯教堂佈道,眾人對他讚譽有加。伯爵想要說服兒子還俗結婚,縱使德格魯虔誠堅定,他心知自己依然難忘瑪儂。他憤怒質問來找他的瑪儂,瑪儂認錯道歉,央求他念在往日舊情原諒自己。最終德格魯屈服於感情,背棄自己的誓言。
