They talk about their first meeting and happiness together, living quietly by the sea. Ruggero tells Magda that he has written to his mother to ask for money to pay their growing debts and for her consent to his marriage to Magda.
Ruggero imagines their happy married life and the child they may have Aria: Dimmi che vuoi seguirmi. Magda is deeply touched, but also uneasy: she knows that her past life as a courtesan would make her unacceptable to Ruggero's family, and possibly to Ruggero if he knew who she really was. As Ruggero leaves to post his letter she meditates on her dilemma, torn between her desire to tell Ruggero everything, her wish not to hurt him and her fear of losing his love.
Prunier and Lisette arrive. Lisette has had a brief and disastrous career as a music-hall singer: her performance in Nice the previous evening was a catastrophe. She and Prunier bicker with each other while waiting for Magda. When Magda appears, Lisette begs for her job back, and Magda consents.
Prunier expresses surprise that Magda can be happy away from Paris, and delivers a message to Magda from Rambaldo: he is happy to take her back on any terms.
Magda refuses to listen. Prunier takes his leave of Lisette first arranging a rendezvous with her for that evening and Lisette resumes her duties as Magda's maid. She looks forward to welcoming the couple to her home and sends Magda a kiss. Magda is unable to keep her secret any longer. She tells Ruggero about her past and declares that she can never be his wife — she would cause his parents too much grief.
Ruggero implores Magda not to abandon him Ma come puoi lasciarmi , but Magda is adamant that they cannot remain together, and that Ruggero must return home.
Like a swallow, she flies back to Rambaldo and her old life, leaving Ruggero behind, devastated. In the second version, which was premiered at Teatro Massimo , Palermo , in , Prunier is the deciding force in Magda's decision to leave Ruggero in Act 3, and she departs without seeing her lover.

When Magda answers the door, she finds the couple bickering and Lisette begs for her old job back. Magda thinks it over shortly and agrees to hire her again.

She even includes a note that tells Ruggero to give a kiss to Magda on her behalf.
Magda cannot hold the truth in any longer. She tells him of her past and how it will greatly disappoint his parents.
Left in her wake is a devastated Ruggero whose life will never quite be the same.
