Scene 1: In the late afternoon, shepherds and shepherdesses arrive to make offerings at Pan's cave. Daphnis and Chloe vow their love but they are interrupted by the arrival of Dorkon, who also loves Chloe, and Lykanion. The shepherds arrange a dance contest between Daphnis and Dorkon: the winner, Daphnis, receives a kiss from Chloe. Chloe then leaves with her friends. Once Daphnis is alone Lykanion tries to seduce him. Suddenly a band of pirates appears and carries Chloe away. Daphnis tries to follow, but Dorkon prevents him. Three nymphs then appear to Daphnis in a vision and, invoking Pan's aid, send him in search of Chloe.
