Bela Bartok: A csodalatos mandarin (The Miraculous Mandarin), Op. 19, BB 82

Opening – The girl and three tramps

First seduction game: the shabby old rake

Second seduction game: the young student

Third seduction game

The Mandarin enters and remains immobile in the doorway

The girl begins a hesitant dance…

The Mandarin stumbles – the chase becomes even more passionate

The three tramps leap out, seize the Mandarin and tear him away from the girl

Suddenly the Mandarin's head appears between the pillows and he looks longingly at the girl

The terrified tramps discuss how they are to get rid of the Mandarin

The body of the Mandarin begins to glow with a greenish blue light

She resists no longer – they embrace
