The Love for Three Oranges


The Love for Three Oranges

Company Premiere
Music by Sergei Prokofiev
Libretto by Sergei Prokofiev and Vera Janacopoulos
Based on Vsevolod Meyerhold’s adaptation of the play by Carlo Gozzi
Performed in English with English supertitles
Part of Festival O19

A favorite of Opera Philadelphia's Music Director Corrado Rovaris, this rarely seen musical gem is a fun, fantastical farce. 

Opulent stage design, a kingdom of colorful characters, and some of Prokofiev's most energetic, accessible music combine for a seriously funny opera about a melancholic prince and his cursed quest for love.
