Natasha, theáMillerĺs daughter, is waiting for theáPrince she loves so passionately.

Soon theáPrince himself appears, having come toáspeak with Natasha. Natasha is delighted at theáPrinceĺs arrival. TheáMiller calls theápeasants toácomfort theáPrince with singing and dancing, though theálatter remains unaffected. TheáPrince tells Natasha that they are soon toábe parted. Natasha guesses that theáPrince is planning toámarry someone else.á
The Prince tries toábuy his way out with extravagant presents and gives Natasha a necklace. Theáshattered Natasha informs theáPrince that she is soon toábecome a mother.

In despair she plunges herself into theáDnieper.
