have found out that Yung-Shi has subjected herself to a similar penalty to the foreigner, and each claims to be the biggest blackguard in the Celestial Empire so as to win her. The bewildered Mandarin is giving his decisions when a noise is heard. British troops are advancing. Chinese soldiers enter and build a rampart of tea-chests. A battle ends in the rout of the Chinese, the rescue of Smith who explains his position, and the capture of the Mandarin who is brought on in the cage. Matters are now reversed, and Captain Bluff sentences him to two years as an advertisement in a London tea shop. The Mandarin collapses, but Bluff tells him that all shall be forgiven if he grants his daughter in marriage to Smith. He consents, and the rest of the opera is a joyful celebration of peace restored. MUSICAL NUMBERS 1. Chorus - Slow & Stately 2. Recit. & Chorus - Behold, Behold Your Mandarin 3.
