"Magda and her protector Rambaldo are entertaining their friends in a luxurious room of a Paris apartment. Prunier sings a song of Doretta, who dreams that one day the King favours her, but admits he cannot end the song. A young man has been waiting to see Rambaldo and now comes in. Magda recalls earlier years of happiness, particularly at the café Chez Bullier, where she once met a man she loved but whose name she never knew. It is here that the young man, Ruggero, is sent for the evening, while Lisette, the object of Prunier's repeated complaints, now goes out with him, dressed in her mistress Magda's clothes. At Chez Bullier Ruggero sits alone, among the crowd of dancers and young people. He is joined by Magda, now simply dressed, and then by Prunier and Lisette, the girls so different in appearance as not to be sure of each other's identity. The arrival of Rambaldo, seeking some explanation of Magda's presence, allows her to tell him that she has found love and will leave him. In the third act, set on the Côte d'Azur, Magda and Ruggero are together, although their money is running out. He has sought his family's permission to marry her, but knows nothing of her life with Rambaldo. Prunier, who has failed to establish Lisette on the stage, now arranges that Magda take her back into service, while Magda herself makes it clear that she must part from Ruggero, who has received his mother's blessing on his proposed marriage to a virtuous wife. Now she will go back to Rambaldo, who is willing to take her back again as his mistress."--Www.naxos.com (viewed on Sept. 27, 2007)
