The Duel - Lucas Steele feat. Josh Groban, Nick Choksi, Amber Gray & Original Broadway Company of Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812

Good evening, Pierre
Studying?

Yes.
How was the opera?

Lovely
Natalya Rostova was there

Oh?
Oh, that charming young girl?
I have known her since she was a child
And long carried affection for her

Yes, charming
Look, Dolokhov is coming round
And we are off to the Club
Will you come, old man?

I will come

Lend me fifty rubles?

Drink, drink
Gonna drink tonight,
Gonna drink tonight,
Gonna drink,
Gonna drink,
Gonna drink tonight,
Gonna drink tonight,
Gonna drink tonight,
Gonna

Drink, drink
Gonna drink tonight,
Gonna drink tonight,
Gonna
Gonna drink,
Gonna drink tonight,
Gonna drink tonight,
Gonna drink tonight

Drink with me my love
For there's fire in the sky,
And there's ice on the ground—
Either way, my soul will die

Whoa...

The doctors warn me
That, with my corpulence,
Vodka and wine are dangerous for me
But I drink a great deal
Only quite at ease
After pouring several glasses
Mechanically into my large mouth

Then I feel
A pleasant warmth in my body,
A sentimental attachment to my fellow men

Keep drinking old man

Keep drinking old man

Drink the whole night through
Keep drinking old man

Keep drinking old man,
Drink the whole night through
Keep drinking old man

Now, Anatole,
What women tonight?
Moscow ladies
Or Gypsy girls?
French actresses?

Just no more unmarried heiresses,
So plain and boring!

And a little too dangerous, eh?
Anatole is a married man
A fact known only to his intimates
A Polish landowner of some small means
Had forced him to marry his daughter

Never mind about that now,
It doesn't matter, I don't give a damn
Just as a duck is made to swim in water,
God has made me as I am
All I care for is gaiety and women
And there's no dishonor in that
As long as there's money and vodka,
I'll keep a feather in my hat

Whoa...

I used to love,
I used to love,
I used to be better

Keep drinking old man

Yes, drink, drink, drink
Drink, drink, drink
God, to think I married a man like you

Don't speak to me, wife—
There is something inside me

Dolokhov, pour me another

Something terrible and monstrous

Here's to the health of married women!
And a smile lurks in the corner of my mouth
Here's to the health of married women,
And their lovers!

Here's to the health of married women!
Here's to the health of married women,
And their lovers!
Here's to the health of married women!
Here's to the health of married women,
And their lovers!

How dare you touch her?

You can't love her!

Enough!
You bully, you scoundrel!
I challenge you!

Oh, a duel!
Yes, this is what I like

He will kill you,
Stupid husband!

So I shall be killed,
What is it to you!
Anatole, my guns

Oh, this is horribly stupid!

Just show me where to go
And tell me when to shoot

Just wait 'til you're close enough,
You'll never hit him from forty paces

Well, let's begin
This is child's play

As the adversaries have refused a reconciliation,
We shall please proceed with the duel
Ready your pistols,
And on the count of tri,
Begin to advance

Rahz! Dva! Tri!

Pierre, hold your fire
Pierre, hold your fire
Pierre, not yet!

No!
My turn

My turn

Pierre!
Stand back!

Missed,
Missed
Oh my mother, my angel,
My adored angel mother!

Take him away

Missed,
Missed
Such a storm of feelings

You are a fool

Natasha, Natasha
Her arms, her shoulders
Her neck, her feet

The air of a connoisseur

I will make love to her

And what will come of it?
She's first-rate, my dear,
But she's not for you—
You'd better wait till she's married

You know I adore little girls,
They lose their heads at once

Ask her to dinner, eh?
Sweet sister
