Review

November, 22nd 2015
The genre is romance. The longest song in the collection – 9:54. It changes at least 5 times during the flow, which makes it very interesting to perceive. Oriental motifs are woven into this time from time and salon music and pop, and even threatening notes from the violins, in the style of the film «Lemony Snicket's A Series Of Unfortunate Events» with Jim Carrey. And it has about the same nasty violin music.

Opera Song Lyrics


MARYA D.
The opera, the opera!
Hold up your dresses and jump out quickly
SERVANT
Ladies
Welcome to the opera
SONYA
Bare arms and shoulders
Brilliant uniforms
Pearls and silk
Glittering before our eyes
Feminine envy
A whole crowd of memories
Desires and emotions
Natasha, smooth your gown
CHORUS
Natasha, smooth your gown
NATASHA
Looking in the glass
I see I am pretty
Not a girl anymore
I've never felt like this before
Hundreds of eyes
Looking at my bare arms
My bare arms and neck
My bare arms and shoulders
CHORUS
The two remarkably pretty girls
Had not been seen in Moscow in many years
Everybody knew vaguely of Natasha's engagement
One of the finest matches in all of Russia
SONYA
Look, there's Alexey, home from the war at last
MARYA D.
He has changed
Dear me, Michael Kirilovich has grown still stouter!
CHORUS
There's Boris and Julie, engaged
And Anna Mikhaylovna, what a headdress she has on!
HELENE
And is that Natasha
CHORUS
And is that Natasha
And is that Natasha
NATASHA
They are looking at me
They are talking about me!
They all like me so much
The women envious
The men calming their jealousy
SERVANT
Announcing Fedya Dolokhov
He dominates Moscow's most brilliant young men
He stands in full view
Well aware he's attracting attention
Yet as much as ease as though he were in his own room
MARYA D.
Dolokhov was in the Caucasus
And he killed the Shah's brother!
Now all the Moscow ladies are mad about him
Dolokhov the assassin!
SERVANT
Announcing Countess Helene Bezukhova
The queen of society
Beautiful, barely clothed
Plump bare shoulders, and much exposed neck
Round which she wears a double string of pearls
CHORUS
Helene and Dolokhov, arm in arm
Pierre the cuckold sits at home
Pierre the cuckold sits at home
The poor man
PIERRE
No, I am enjoying myself at home this evening
NATASHA
Oh, that neck
Oh, those pearls
HELENE
So beautiful
What a charming young girl
So enchanting
NATASHA
I blush scarlet
MARYA D.
Countess Bezukhova, Pierre's wife
Have you been here long?
And where is dear Pierre?
He never used to forget us
NATASHA
Yes Pierre, that good man
A little sad, a little stout
He must come visit us
HELENE
I will implore
MARYA D.
There's a woman one should stay far away from
Now Natasha
The curtain rises
CHORUS
The curtain rises
NATASHA
Everyone in the boxes and the stalls became silent
All the men, old and young, in uniform and evening dress
All the women in the hall
With gems on their bare flesh
Turned their whole attention
With curiosity to the stage
(Two singers perform a scene from an avant-garde opera. It is grotesque and amazing.)
NATASHA
Grotesque and amazing
I cannot follow the opera
Or even listen to the music
I see painted cardboard
Queerly dressed actors
Moving and singing so strangely in the lights
So false and unnatural
I'm ashamed and amused
And everyone else seems oblivious
Yes everyone feigns delight
SONYA
And feeling the flood of brilliant lights,
The warm perfumed air heated by the crowd,
Natasha little by little
Began to pass into a state of intoxication
(Natasha joins the singers in the opera.)
NATASHA
Oh I'd tickle you all if I could
Oh I'd tickle you all if I could
SONYA
And then
A rush of cold air
NATASHA & SONYA
An exceptionally handsome man walked in
With a confident yet courteous air
HELENE
This was Helene's brother
Anatole Kuragin
He moved with a swagger
Which would have been ridiculous
Had he not been so good-looking
And though it was the middle of the act
He walked right down the aisle
His sword and spurs jangling
His handsome perfumed head held high
And he looked right at Natasha
ANATOLE
Mais Charmante
HELENE
And he took his place in the front row next to Dolokhov
NATASHA
How handsome he is
How intoxicating
SONYA
In the second act there were tombstones
The moon over the footlights
Horns and contrabass
Black cloaks and daggers in their hands
NATASHA
I turn around again and our eyes meet
He gazes straight into my eyes
He is talking about me
SONYA
Candles burning
A crimson throne
The Tsar wails a mournful tune
They all wave their arms
And everybody cheers
?Bravo, bravo!?
NATASHA
Everytime I look at him
He's looking at me
Everytime I look at him
He's looking at me
Everytime I look at him
SONYA
A terrible noise, a clutter in the crowd
A storm of chromatic scales and diminished sevenths
With rapturous faces everyone was shouting
Screaming and shouting, ?Bravo!?
CHORUS
Bravo, bravo
Bravo, bravo
Bravo, bravo
SONYA
And then
A rush of cole air
And Anatole entered the box
