The beautiful princess enters carried by her servants,(she is represented by a languorous theme, given at first to clarinet and cello, then repeated by full orchestra)-she stays to watch the jugglers and snake-charmer. The Caliph now passes through the market and interrupts the entertainment, the beggars are heard again, the princess prepares to depart and the caravan resumes its journey; the themes of the princess and the camel-drivers are heard faintly in the distance and the market-place becomes deserted.
