Meet the Locals
Act 1: Scene 2
As night falls upon the port of New Orleans, Catherine, and her fellow travelers Véronique and Élise take in the new world in which they've arrived. As they wait for the formal envoy from the Ursline convent to retrieve them, they are immediately approached, and assessed by the locals.
Catherine quickly gains the attention of a young man named Jean, as two very different cultures clash for the first time.
