Diana is captured in the moon. Her nymphs, sitting with Pan on earth in a wooded glen, are sad. To cheer them and to signal her approaching return, Diana shoots an arrow to the earth where it blossoms into flowers. Accompanied by flute and lyre, the nymphs dance. Diana appears in their midst and leads them in revelry. In another part of the wood, Pan appears - he dances, leaps, jumps into a pond, and plays his flute. Tired, lies down to rest.
