Lieutenant Kijé (includes Troika)
1st of Prokofiev's 2 entries.
Following the life story of Lieutenant Kijé, Prokofiev's score accompanies the 1934 Soviet film of the same name. A soldier writes out orders for the Tsar, but accidentally miscopies two words, creating a non-existent Lieutenant in the document. The story follows the fictional birth, romance, wedding and burial of the man, as well as the wonderful Troika, a musical sleigh-ride complete with jingling bells.
