Prologue

(An accordion plays as Andrey finishes putting on his uniform. He gives a last goodbye to Natasha and then leaves.)

PIERRE
There?s a war going on ?
Out there somewhere ?
And Andrey isn?t here ?

Out there somewhere
And Andrey isn?t here??

There?s a war going on ?
Out there somewhere
And Andrey isn?t here ?

And this is all in your program
You are at the opera ?
Gonna have to study up a little bit
If you wanna keep with the plot ?
Cuz it?s a complicated Russian novel
Everyone?s got nine different names ?
So look it up in your program?
We?d appreciate it, thanks a lot
