However, her mother, a widow and owner of a prosperous farm, has a more ambitious plans in mind for her daughter: she wants to arrange marriage of Lise with Nikez, the dimwitted son of Michaud, a rich countryman.   Marcelina makes Lise to churn butter and keeps a close eye on her.  During the engagement of Lisa and Nikez, the girl manages to escape with her beloved Colas, who was hiding behind the house.

After a day working in the fields, the harvesters relax in a joyful dance.  Lise and Colas hide among sheaves to escape the pursuit.  Storm begins and everyone runs to shelter from the rain.   

Act II

Scene II

 The storm has blown over. Marcelina and Lise return home and sit down at their spinning-wheels. Peasants deliver the hay sheaves they have managed to save from the rain. Marcelina goes off with them, leaving Lise locked up indoors. Lise dreams of her future husband.  To her embarrassment, Colas comes in.   Once again they declare their love, exchanging scarves as a token. As Marcelina reappears, Lise hustles Colas into her bedroom.  Marcelina comes in and, noticing the new kerchief round Lise’s neck, locks her in her room as punishment, never suspecting that Colas is in there too.  Nikez and his father now arrive with a notary to complete the marriage contract.  When it is signed, Marzelina hands Nikez the bedroom key. He opens the door, and, to everyone’s dismay, Colas and Lise emerge. The lovers fall on their knees to ask Marcelina for forgiveness and a blessing.  Marzelina’s precautions were vain.   

Scene II

Peasants greet wedding ceremony.  Great celebration takes places in the village.
