Gregory laments his fate

The Widow Anahit, who brings him bread and water

The 3 Angels who watch over Gregory

Gregory's childhood nurse scolds him in a vision

His childhood nurse and teacher argue over him

The angels send Gregory a vision of cranes

Gregory comforts the Loti

He has a vision of himself as a young man picking apricots

Wonderment at the vision of apricot pickers

"The King dancing his madness

The King's sister silencing the king's madness with her song

A moment of recognition

The King submits to the Saint

The Composer takes a bow
