The Obsessions Of Sgt. Krug

This is a modern ballet in the style of 19th century classical music. It tells the story of a Russian peasant in 1812. He is a charmer and a womanizer who longs for more excitement in his life. He is recruited for the army to fight Napoleon. He enjoys his time in Moscow (womanizing) before heading off to war. He soon discovers the horrors awaiting him. He is promoted to Sargent after most of his regiment is slaughtered. He survives the war, but now longs to return to his simple peasant life. He returns to his village and continues his life as a charmer and womanizer.
