Description Petrushka, a puppet with a cocky and complicated personality, an image of rebellious and suffering little person who comes into conflict with the surrounding world which is at once callous and ruthless. Petrushka's comical, spontaneous character is complemented by a lyrical love story. "Sabre Dance" (a brief allusion to Khachaturian) which appears unexpectedly on the crest of culmination, is a sinister omen of a tragic end.
